Peter Harrison

The clash among technological know-how and faith turns out indelible, even everlasting. without doubt such divergent perspectives of the universe have constantly been in fierce competition? really, that’s now not the case, says Peter Harrison: our very ideas of technology and faith are rather fresh, rising in basic terms some time past 300 years, and it truly is these very different types, instead of their underlying innovations, that constrain our knowing of ways the formal examine of nature pertains to the non secular life.

In The Territories of technology and Religion, Harrison dismantles what we expect we all know concerning the different types, then places all of it again jointly back in a provocative, effective new approach. through tracing the background of those ideas for the 1st time in parallel, he illuminates replacement barriers and little-known relatives among them—thereby making it attainable for us to benefit from their actual heritage, and spot different attainable ways in which clinical research and the non secular existence may well relate to, impression, and collectively increase every one other.
A travel de strength by means of a unusual pupil operating on the peak of his powers, The Territories of technological know-how and Religion offers to without end adjust the best way we predict approximately those primary pillars of human existence and experience.
