Description

This study draws on both the history and philosophy of science in discussing the inter-relationship of religion and science. The central feature of this book is a series of case studies (on Galileo, Darwin and Hawking), which Phil Dowe describes and analyzes philosophically to show relations between religion and science. The book is distinctive in taking a philosophical approach and should be of interest to anyone studying the philosophy of religion. The main three philosophers covered are Galileo, Darwin and Hawking, but there are also sections on Augustine, Calvin, Descartes, Bacon, and Hume, amongst others. Coverage is broad-ranging, including chapters on cosmology and scripture; the hermeneutics of science and religion; knowledge and power; miracles; creation and evolution; big bang cosmology and god; god and chance; and the interaction of science and religion.show more
