Religion, Science and Naturalism

Full Product Description

This book considers the consequences of the natural sciences (physics, biology, neurosciences) for our view of the world. Willem Drees argues that higher, more complex levels of reality, such as religion and morality, are to be viewed as natural phenomena and have their own concepts and explanations, even though all elements of reality are constituted by the same kinds of matter (ontological naturalism). Religion and morality are to be understood as rooted in our evolutionary past and our neurophysiological constitution. The book takes a more radical naturalist position than most on religion and science. But religion is not dismissed: religious traditions remain important as bodies of wisdom and vision, and the naturalist view of the world does not exclude a sense of wonder and awe, since at the limits of science questions about the existence of natural reality persist.

Religion, Science and Naturalism by Willem B. Drees (University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands) was published by Cambridge University Press in November 1998 and is our 47142nd best seller. The ISBN for Religion, Science and Naturalism is 9780521645621.
