Nieuw boek over geloof en wetenschap

Mijn nieuwe boek is net verschenen: Religion and Science in Context: A Guide to the Debates (Routledge, 2010), Het is ook in paperback verschenen, voor ongeveer 25 euro.

De eerste hoofdstukken van het boek analyseren de discussies over geloof en wetenschap met enige distantie: Waar maken mensen zich druk over? Hoe functioneert ‘ geloof en wetenschap’? Voor sommigen gaat het om het bestrijden van secularisatie (en dan zijn alle atheïsten opponenten), voor anderen meer om het bestrijden van onzin (en dan zijn sommige atheïsten bondgenoten). Het veerbinden van wetenschap en geloof functioneert soms als apologetiek voor geloof, maar minstens zo vaak als apologetiek voor wetenschap, en misschien nog wel vaker als ammunitie in een intern religieus dispuut tussen aanhangers van verschillende stromingen binnen een traditie. In de volgende hoofdstukken gaat het over criteria om zinnige en onzinnige bijdragen te onderscheiden, en om de vele aspecten van ‘religie’ (als wereldbeeld, ethiek, gemeenschap, en zo meer). De laatste drie hoofdstukken geven de eigen visie van Drees in deze discussies, en hebben als titels

   Mystery in an intelligible world

   Values in a world of facts

   Meaning in a material world

Willem B. Drees, hoogleraar godsdienstwijsbegeerte en ethiek, en de redactreur van Zygon: Journal of Religion and Science ( ),
