Encyclopedia of Science and Religion (MacMillan Reference USA)

Buy
The publication of the Encyclopedia of Science and Religion is a significant milestone marking the maturation of the contemporary dialogue between the sciences and religions. Not only does this Encyclopedia offer a massive amount of interdisciplinary and interreligious information, but it mirrors one of the most fascinating stories of our time: the emergence of an extensive international discussion among scientists of various specializations, philosophers of nearly all persuasions, and religious thinkers from all the major world religions. Spectacular advances in the sciences no longer easily threaten religions around the world because the risks and devastating consequences of new technologies have problematized the formerly unquestioned ideal of scientific progress. Scientific advances still challenge basic religious convictions, however, and the intellectual representatives of the world’s religious traditions grapple with scientific knowledge more effectively and pervasively than ever before, thanks to the science-religion dialogue. Today sciences as varied as the neurosciences, ecology, and biotechnology raise questions about human beings and the future of our planetary home, perhaps especially for those who possess a sense of the divine. Similarly, chaos theory, quantum mechanics, and the ever-deepening understanding of the role of chance in biological systems conspire to challenge the notions of ultimate reality and divine action espoused by religious traditions and sacred texts.
