  1. Kevin Christensen Kevin Christensen says:

    The subtitle states that it is a comparative study of science and religion I chanced upon a copy in the Cupertino library and from the title felt an obligation to read it It remains one of my favorite books Carefully structured cleanly written profound in the insights offered and richly applicable to current debates I've uoted this many times in my own writing and often recommend it to friends

    I read this for a Religious Studies course when I was an undergraduate I'm re reading now for an update Review to follow I can't believe how much I had forgotten about this book I thought that I remembered if favourably from my course I don't like it It's just a lot of postmodern claptrap Written by someone with no earthly idea how science actually works Barbour starts from his Religious Philosophy tradition and just digs a very deep logical hole He has a very sloppy use of language in his references to the practice of the science enterprise He apparently cannot tell the difference between an hypothesis and a theory He apparently thinks Physics is science He grants far too much latitude to Kuhn and Feyerabend and none to Popper I have no use for such sillyness as Feyerabendian relativity and Barbour does

    Barbour hopes to dissect religion using scientific ideasPerhaps the new views of science described in this volume can offer some encouragement to such a combination of commitment and enuiry in religion Kindle Locations 3111 3112 The author notes that myths are thought of as expressions of the cosmic order but in western religion myths are based on historical events rather than on nature He asserts that biblical faith isn't blind faith but based on experience For me the book was a bit tedious I found chapter two about myth and symbol the most interesting


  4. Jeff Jeff says:

    Written by a pioneer in the field exploring the relationship of science and religion Barbour was both physicist and theologian The book explores the nature of scientific and religious language in the construction of models and paradigms used in each discipline As it turns out from this angle the difference in science and religion is one of degree than absolute contrast
