Abstract:

"The Dialogue Between Science & Religion found in this work is based on the positive portrait of competence and good will found among all those involved: scientists, philosophers and theologians alike. So many statements and discussions about this topic put forth abstract statements about science and religion rather than what each of the discussants do in pursuing the development of their disciplines, what methods they use in practice and even what some of their day-to-day intuitions might be. This book on the other hand, makes effective use of just these relational aspects. It is clear that the dialoguers here have made just this kind of effort to learn a great deal about each other. The level of respect thus established has produced a very interesting read on a truly professional level which sheds helpful light on an obviously complex problem."--BOOK JACKET.
