Item description for How To Relate Science And Religion: A Multidimensional Model by Mikael Stenmark...

Overview
Today there are two very different views concerning the relation of science and religion. On the one hand is the view that there is no limit to the competency of science, including its ability to subsume the traditional domains of religion and values. On the other hand is the view that science ought to itself be shaped in a significant way by religion. In this book these opposing views are presented, critically discussed, and replaced with a badly needed conciliatory model of science and religion. Written by Templeton Prize-winner Mikael Stenmark, How to Relate Science and Religion points an exciting way forward in the effort to reconcile what are arguably the two most powerful cultural forces of our time. Stenmark succinctly lays out the central issues of the debate and shows what is at stake for the nature and advancement of human knowledge. The outcome of Stenmark's work is the construction of a "multidimensional model" of science and religion that refuses to automatically prioritize either. Stenmark shows the ongoing though shifting value of both science and religion played out as a dynamic, evolving relationship.

Reviews - What do customers think about How To Relate Science And Religion: A Multidimensional Model?

Thoughtful and thought provoking reading  Feb 4, 2005
How To Relate Science And Religion: A Multidimensional Model by Mikael Stenmark (Professor of Philosophy of Religion, Uppsala University, Sweden) introduces the reader to two disparate and seemingly opposing perspectives on the relationship of religion and science. The first is the view that there is no limit to the competency of science to explain ourselves and the world in which we exist. The second view is that religion has a prober role to play in shaping scientific inquiry and interpretation. Professor Stenmark accessibly presents the central issues of the on-going debate between these two views and offers a "multidimensional model" of science and religion that does not automatically give dominance or priority to either perspective. Thoughtful and thought provoking reading, How To Relate Science And Religion is especially recommended to the the attention of non-specialist general readers with an interest in a reconciliation between the two most influential approaches to discovering and explaining the world in terms of logic and of faith, of experimentation and revelation.
