Autorentext

The Author: Having earned a B.S. in mathematics at Michigan State University and a Ph.D. in philosophy at Washington University in St. Louis, Dr. Hobbs has gone on to explore the interface between religion and science in general, focusing particular attention on philosophical implications of chaos theory. His articles appear in the 'Journal of Philosophy, Canadian Journal of Philosophy, Philosophy of Science' and 'British Journal for the Philosophy of Science'. He has been a Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Notre Dame's Center for Philosophy of Religion, and currently teaches logic at The University of Mississippi.



Klappentext

Can one rationally cite the existence of God or other religious entities in explaning matters of fact? Religious ideologies and scientific explanations are familiar to many of us, but could there be enough epistemic power in religion to justify interesting explanations, and enough ideology in science to cause common belief to the contrary? In arguing that there is, the author points out some legitimate differences in the cognitive value structures typical of religion as opposed to science - differences effectively broadening the requirements on explanations imposed by rationality alone, beyond what is scientifically recognized. This book endeavours to bring religious and scientific people back to the bargaining table, showing where there is room for the members of each culture to grant valid points of the opposition without compromising their own basic values or integrity.
