Item Description...
Overview
How can science and religion move together towards a collegial future? J. Wentzel van Huyssteen spent decades developing an interdisciplinary platform for the fruitful engagement of science and religion. In this honorific volume, his protege F. LeRon Shults has gathered a chorus of excellent voices in van Huyssteen's main areas of philosophy, science, and religion. The contributors offer significant new methodological and material proposals, giving evidence to van Huyssteen's impact on the shape and texture of interdisciplinary conversation itself. Part 1 focuses primarily on philosophical challenges to our understanding of rationality raised by evolutionary theory, social science, and the shape of postmodern culture. Part 2 explores how discoveries in sciences may illuminate our understanding of the nature and development of human rationality. Part 3 focuses more specifically on religious and theological issues in the interdisciplinary dialogue. However, each essay invariably engages issues that overlap all three fields, forming an extremely rich mix/weave/blend. Sure to delight all who long to see these traditional sparring partners united, The Evolution of Rationality renders fitting tribute to one of the brightest lights in theology today.
