Science and religion [electronic resource] : a search for synergism /

by Jones, J. Michael

Abstract (Summary)
In this thesis, I consider the problem of relating science and religion, and search for a solution that will provide a useful model both for individual believers as well as professional scientists and theologians. In this search, I take up the works of three of the most influential thinkers to write on the subject: Andrew Dickson White, Alfred North Whitehead, and Ian G. Barbour. I survey each of their texts and evaluate the philosophyof science and religion that they present. In the end, I conclude that the version of process philosophy adopted by Ian Barbour offers the most promising solution to the problem of relating science and religion.
