A Humane Philosophy of Science and Religion

Andrew Steane

Reviews and Awards

“The first chapters are impressive, when he cogently argues against any simple-minded reduction of all science to physics…it is refreshing to find a scientist who is open to deep truth outside his own area of expertise.” — Roger Trigg, Theology

“This is a highly personal book, presenting a theological, philosophical, and moral vision in lyrical and sometimes highly idiosyncratic form…Not, I think, since David Bentley Hart’s The Experience of God (2013) have I both laughed out loud in delight as I read a book, and more than once been moved to tears.” — Andrew Davison, University of Cambridge, Modern Theology

“offers reflections and analysis of great interest for those involved in the scienceandtheology dialogue … the author offers a courageous attempt to develop an updated version about religion’s meaning from a more scientific perspective actually the physicist’s viewpoint. Such an attempt could help us better conceive how science and religion dialogue when we assume the particular point of view held by the scientist, and less the theological patterns.” — Lluis Oviedo, European Society for the Study of Science and Theology

“Steane offers important contributions to the philosophy of science in terms of seeing it as part of a holistically constituted human enterprise.” — Mark Q, Metascience

“[a] profound book” — David Lorimer, Paradigm Explorer

“This volume’s insightful and appealing consideration of the relationship of science and religion will appeal to thoughtful readers regardless of their position regarding this question” — CHOICE

“This volume’s insightful and appealing consideration of the relationship of science and religion will appeal to thoughtful readers regardless of their position.” — Professor Samuel C. Pearson (emeritus), Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville

“An important contribution towards a humane view of the machinery of science by a leading physicist.” — Nicolas Gisin, University of Geneva

“This is a bold, original, imaginative and 3-dimensional book, infused with honesty and humility.” — Paul Ewart, University of Oxford

“This is a deeply personal, poetic and philosophical book by a professional physicist who wants to divert rivers of fresh water to the desiccated discourse of late modern world-views. His urgent patience in addressing poorly-founded atheist arguments, makes compulsive reading. Insistent that the world of relativity, quantum mechanics, and thermodynamics that he loves is perfectly receptive of meaning, purpose, freedom and love, this is a read for anyone who cherishes the miracle of being human.” — Tom McLeish, University of York
