Can the knowledge provided by modern science satisfy our need to know the most profound nature of reality and of humanity?
“The great advantage of this book is that it puts together texts of authors (scientists, philosophers and theologians) whose lucidity about modern science goes far beyond emotional reaction and moralist subjectivity; and this ‘tour de force’ is accomplished from within the point of view of the main traditional religions. Here, Science and Faith are reconciled in an unexpected way: scientific objectivity is not an issue; but the real issue, where one sees no proof of progress, is whether man is capable of using modern science properly. A must for the reader who wants to sharpen his or her discernment about modern science.”
—Jean Pierre Lafouge, Marquette Univerity
“Writing as an active research scientist, living in the present Culture of Disbelief created (partly unwittingly) by the science establishment, I can think of no Research and Development project more significant to the future of humanity than putting ‘science’ back into its proper place as a part of culture, but not its religion. This book is an excellent contribution to that paramount goal.”
—Rustum Roy, Evan Pugh Professor of the Solid State, Emeritus, Pennsylvania State University
