Wisdom Or Knowledge?: Science, Theology and Cultural Dynamics

A&C Black, 1 gen 2006 - 157 pagine
The book will consider science and the nature of knowledge. Is scientific knowledge wisdom, or is it more limited — effective, useful, applicable, but not what we mean by wisdom? And is the wisdom of ages past embodied in the great religious traditions still wisdom for our time, as we have to face new challenges, opportunities and responsibilities? To what extent are science and theology determined by their cultural setting? To what extent do they influence the development of culture? Thus, the reader herself or himself will be encouraged to 'drink' from the streams of wisdom and knowledge which will be investigated in the book in order to think anew about the rather simple separation between two cultures which has prevailed for a rather long time in scientific, theological and cultural thinking. >
