When Barth and Scholz clashed over the scientific status of theology, Barth drew the conclusion that if natural science was to be drawn up in such positivistic terms, theology had much to lose and little to gain by engagement with it. A generation later Barth's translator and pupil Thomas Torrance maintained that science had changed enough to make an engagement more fruitful. however at the same time the anarchic philosopher of science Paul Feyerabend, in the book such as against Method, sought to deconstruct any notion of "science" as ultimately the protection of vested interests. This book analyses whether Torrance's notion of science can withstand this newer post-modern treat
