Recent Themes in the History of Science and Religion

Historians in Conversation

Edited by Donald A. Yerxa
Described as "the New York Review of Books for history," Historically Speaking has emerged as one of the most distinctive historical publications in recent years, actively seeking out contributions from a pantheon of leading voices in historical discourse from both inside and outside academia. Recent Themes in the History of Science and Religion represents some of the best writing on the intersections of scientific and religious history produced in recent years. This collection of essays from Historically Speaking centers around four sustained dialogues among an international group of leading historians of science. Two of the conversations focus on how historians interpret the relationship between science and religion. Another section examines whether there was such a phenomenon as the scientific revolution and, if so, whether it was of pivotal importance. The final section debates the notion that there has been discernable progress in history. Collectively the experts contributing to this volume seek to broach the big questions at stake in ongoing efforts to fathom the historical interface of science and religion—two of the most important ways of knowing our world—to better our understanding of how both have shaped the course of history and the direction of modern thinking. Designed as a supplemental reader for students of scientific and religious history, this volume will appeal as well to general readers with avid interests in history. The contributors are John Hedley Brooke, David Christian, J. C. D. Clark, Charles C. Gillispie, Peter Harrison, Edward J. Larson, David C. Lindberg, David N. Livingstone, Robert E. Lucas Jr., Bruce Mazlish, Ronald L. Numbers, William R. Shea, and Aviezer Tucker.
