Autorentext

The Author: Cameron Wybrow received his Ph.D. degree in Western Religious Thought from McMaster University. He has taught at McMaster and Thorneloe Universities and is the author of a number of scholarly papers on religious attitudes toward nature, Old Testament, and religion and politics. He is currently editing a book on the creation-science hypothesis of Michael B. Foster.



Klappentext

Modern scholars have frequently asserted that Western technological mastery over nature sprang from the triumph of 'Biblical' over 'pagan' modes of thought. In a spirited response to the views of Berger, Collingwood, Cox, Foster, Jaki, Roszak, Toynbee, White and others, the author disproves this hypothesis. By a careful exposition of pagan, Biblical, and early modern texts, he shows that the theme of mastery is no more pronounced in Biblical than in pagan thought, and that Bacon's science entailed a rejection of both. Further, he shows that the radical character of modern mastery was effectively concealed by the Baconians, whose slipshod but rhetorically successful interpretation of Biblical 'dominion' supplied the spiritual justification for the modern conquest of nature.
