    Gary B. Ferngren ¾ 6 characters READ [Science and Religion A Historical Introduction] For my first time teaching a course on religion and science I perused several introductory texts and settled on this one to assign for historical background It is not an enjoyable read—most of the articles were written for an encyclopedia and are thus meant for a academic audience My freshmen weathered the articles and perhaps picked up some info here and there I described it as our “meat and potatoes” in a course mostly full of de

This is one of numerous recently published books on the topic of the history of the war between science and religion This book is a collection of no less than 30 separate essays on the historical conflict The chapters range all the way from Aristotle and the early Christian period to medieval writers such as St Augustine and Thomas Auinas to the Copernican revolution Galileo and Newton and on to the modern period with geology biology evolution physics astronomy cosmology and finally a chapter on postmodernism and its relation to scienceThis book certainly covers the ground But I personally found it a bit unsatisfying Because none of these authors really had the room to explore their topic in depth the result is a collection of a lot of short vignettes that really don t provide all that much new information I ll keep reading

Ferngren ¾ 6 characters Scoveries such as those of Copernicus Galileo and Isaac Newton and the Catholic and Protestant reactions to them They assess changes in scientific understanding brought about by eighteenth and nineteenth century transformations in geology cosmology and biology together with the responses of both mainstream religious groups and such newer movements as evangelicalism and fundamentalism The book also treats the theological implications of contemporary science and evaluates recent approaches such as environmentalism gender studies social construction and postmodern. I read this anthology of introductory essays in conjunction with John Hedley Brooke s Science and Religion Some Historical Perspectives and the comparison between the two is interesting Brooke s book which replaces conflict and convergence models of the science religion relationship with a complexity thesis is certainly the important contribution academically But as my GR review indicated it freuently bogs down a bit in detail and will scare off all but truly dedicated readers In contrast Ferngren s anthology which includes essays by major scholars including David Lindberg Owen Gingrich Richard Westfal Ronald Numbers and Brooke himself is reasonably accessible For the most part its approach is based on Brooke s you won t find many grand pronouncements and all of the writers are aware of the dangers of generalization It s divided into seven sections the first five chronological the last two addressing themes that cross eras and contemporary issues The contemporary issues chapters on Gender the Social Construction of Science and Postmodernism haven t aged well since 2002 Readers who don t know the turf are probably better off skipping them The chronological chapters address intellectual issues such as Natural Theology Mechanical Philosophy and evolutionism as well focusing on major figures Aristotle Galileo Newton Darwin Almost all of the chapters are solid some of them very good But the anthology doesn t read particularly well as an overview There s a huge amount of repetition a side effect probably inevitable of the editorial decision to make each chapter stand alone Reading them with Brooke fresh in mind also makes it clear when complexities are elided again an inevitable by product of the format The best use for Ferngren s book is probably as a uick reference for those familiar with the issues or as a source of brief introductions to particular topics for students just entering the field
