Of Scientists And Their Gods

by John Hedley Brooke

Book review

Inaugurating this new chair in Science and Religion, Professor Brooke argued several inter-related theses: that a discourse of 'science and religion' has a long history; that the inter-relations between the two domains have been so rich and complex that they cannot be reduced to simple models of conflict of harmony; that iconic figures of western science, such as Copernicus, Boyle, Newton, Priestley, Darwin, and Einstein found in theology resources for the advancement of their science; and that, when placed in context, there is usually more to a discourse of 'science and religion' than science and religion.
