About: The Cambridge Companion to Science and Religion

In recent years, the relationship between science and religion has been the object of renewed attention. Developments in physics, biology, and the neurosciences have reinvigorated discussions about the nature of life and ultimate reality. At the same time, the growth of anti-evolutionary and intelligent design movements has led many to the view that science and religion are incompatible necessarily in conflict.

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the relationship between the two great disciplines of science and religion. Containing contributions from historians, philosophers, scientists, and theologians, it explores the impact of religion on the origins and development of science, religious reactions to Darwinism, and the link between science and secularization.

It also offers in-depth discussions of contemporary issues, with perspectives from cosmology, evolutionary biology, psychology, and bioethics. The volume is rounded out with philosophical reflections on the connections between atheism and science, the nature of scientific and religious knowledge, and divine action and human freedom.
