Science versus Religion as Guide to Metaphysics


This is the second volume of the double issue of Eidos. A Journal for Philosophy of Culture devoted to the relationship between science and religion.
The contributions across these two volumes have mostly been concerned with, and argued for, various aspects of a non-reductive view of this relationship, according to which reality is not limited to what the natural sciences can tell us about it. That is the view that science and religion are not in conflict, or that the advances made by the natural sciences do not undermine religion as an adequate means of addressing the big questions humanity faces.
This is not only a very welcome but also exciting result confirming that after many decades of an almost complete monopoly of scientific naturalism in English language philosophy the field is beginning to open up to a more diverse range of views. This development has made it possible for philosophers in the analytic tradition to engage with topics of deep human importance in a serious and systematic way.
