Résumé :
Old Wine, New Flasks is a unique and provocative look at how science and religion - too often considered at odds with one another - are actually parallel ways of trying to make sense of the same material world, each a voice intertwining with the other to help shape true human understanding. With great humor and wit, the authors - one a Nobel laureate and the other an Israeli-American writer and student of religion -  Lire la suite...

    schema:description "Old Wine, New Flasks is a unique and provocative look at how science and religion - too often considered at odds with one another - are actually parallel ways of trying to make sense of the same material world, each a voice intertwining with the other to help shape true human understanding. With great humor and wit, the authors - one a Nobel laureate and the other an Israeli-American writer and student of religion - show how daily experience and seemingly innocuous questions such as "What is this mixture?" "How do I tell right from left?" and "How can one make the bitter sweet?" can lead to deeper philosophical issues concerning religion, art, and science. Old Wine, New Flasks discusses how authority is conferred and contested, what it means to be impure, whether humans have a right to dominate the environment, and the difference between the natural and the unnatural. Exploring these and other topics, the authors reveal how science and Jewish religious tradition, although different in many ways, nevertheless share the conviction that the world is a very real place, that the actions of beings matter, and that there is an underlying order to the universe."@en ;
