Unlocking Divine Action

Contemporary Science and Thomas Aquinas

About the Author

Michael J. Dodds, OP is professor of theology and philosophy at the Dominican School of Theology and Philosophy


"Supplies an essential element that was missing in the theology–science debate on divine action, an element that will broaden and enrich our general understanding of causality. Michael Dodds masterfully brings together philosophy, theology and science . . . a good example of the longstanding tradition of bringing classical philosophy and theology into dialogue with contemporary science. An important voice in the debate on divine action." —Theology and Science

"A valuable contribution to the science and religion debate on divine action." —New Blackfriars

"Fr. Dodds has given us an outstanding book. His criticisms of the leading lights of the science and religion field are radical, but not rancorous. Addressing divine action, his work has not so much entered the fray, as called o the combat. His proposal, erudite in both metaphysics and contemporary science, should foster a new kind of conversation."—American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly

"Represents an important and sophisticated analysis of science-religion debates and makes an important constructive theological contribution."—Religious Studies Review

"Uncovers an unexpected relationship between classical philosophy and contemporary science . . . an important study for all readers interested in the relation between theology and science. Recommended." —Choice
