God, Humanity and the Cosmos: A Companion to the Science-Religion Debate
John Hedley Brooke
Paul D. Murray
Michael Robert Negus
This fully revised and updated edition of God, Humanity and the Cosmos includes new chapters by John Hedley Brooke, Paul D. Murray and David Wilkinson.
In addition to a systematic exploration of contemporary perspectives in physics, evolutionary biology and psychology as they relate to theological descriptions of the universe, humanity and consciousness, the book now provides a thorough survey of the theological, philosophical and historical issues underpinning the science-religion debate.
Contributors also examine such issues as theological responses to the ecological crisis and to biotechnology; how science is treated and valued in education; and the relation of science to Islamic thought.
Dr Christopher Southgate is Lecturer in Theology at the University of Exeter.'
