Neglected Perspectives on Science and Religion explores historical and contemporary relations between science and religion, providing new perspectives on familiar topics such as evolution and the Galileo affair. The book also explores common differences in science and religion with respect to their various treatments of doubt, curiosity, and the methods by which truth claims are assessed. The book includes discussions of religious and scientific treatments of the origins of males and females, evolving views of sex and gender, and contemporary tensions about topics such as same-sex marriage. Viney and Woody also include a chapter exploring the effects of social science research on religious topics such as prayer, prejudice, and violence. The rise of social sciences such as psychology, sociology, and anthropology has resulted in discoveries that contribute to new ways of thinking about the relations of science and religion. This book is ideal for graduate and upper-level undergraduate students, as well as anyone interested in science and religion.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This wonderful book takes a deep and probing look at the complex relation between science and religion. Noted historians Viney and Woody not only describe the crucible in which we now view this relation with surprising insights, they also resolve some pivotal puzzles that have long befuddled those of us who care about science and religion." - Brent D. Slife, Professor of Psychology and Richard L. Evans Chair of Religious Understanding, Brigham Young University, USA

"This exceptional volume is long overdue. It creatively and ingeniously takes the classic religion-science debate and shows its basic weaknesses from perspectives in history, philosophy, psychology, and even religion and science. It is a scholarly must." - Bernard Spilka, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, University of Denver, USA
