This volume situates itself within the context of the rapidly growing interdisciplinary field that is dedicated to the study of the complex interactions between science and religion. It presents an innovative approach insofar as it addresses the Eurocentrism that is still prevalent in this field. At the same time it reveals how science develops in the space that emerges between the `local' and the `global'. The volume examines a range of themes central to the interaction between science and religion: `Eastern' thought within `Western' science and religion and vice versa, and revisits thinkers who sought to integrate `Eastern' and `Western' thinking. It studies Zen Buddhism and its relation to psychotherapy, Islamic science, Vedantic science, atheism in India, and Darwinism, offering in turn new perspectives on a variety of approaches to nature.

Part of the Science and Technology Studies series, this volume brings together original perspectives from major scholars from across disciplines and will be of great interest to scholars and students of science and technology studies, history of science, philosophy of science, religious studies, and sociology.

"By extending the scope of the discussion beyond the Western Christian world, it not only addresses these old questions but raises some new ones."

Gregory W. Dawes, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand

"Yitfach Fehige argues that the growing field of science and religion has a 'predominant narrow focus on Western Christendom' (2)."

Jonathan Edelmann, University of Florida, USA
