    One thought on “Science and Religion (Great Courses, #4691)”

    1. These twelve lectures provide a history of the relationship between science and religion. It may come as a surprise to some people to learn that science and religion have been partners through most of history. Prof. Principe describes how theologians and natural scientists share methods, ideas, aspirations and a tradition of disputational dialogue. The news media today reports on the most attention getting rhetoric that comes from the extremes on both sides, and it gives the impression of consta [...]

    2. A series of twelve lectures on the history of the interaction and relationship between science and religion, including the contributions of Augustine, Galileo, and Darwin, as well as recommendations for thinking intelligently about the intersection between science and religion in the twenty-first century.All in all, this was a pretty decent series. Principe is a good lecturer, and he handles complex topics well. He has the credentials to back up his claims, too--a Ph.D. in both a hard science (o [...]

    3. This was lent to me by a relative who knew that I am interested science and Christian faith. I found it to cover many areas that I already knew well from reading books on this very topic. However, there's definitely something extra gained by having someone cover this in the format of a short course. I found that after listening to the course I was better able to explain my own point of view to others. This was the first and only "Great Course" that I've listened to, and now I'm anxious to get so [...]

    4. Outstanding explanation of the relationship between science and religion, complete with clarification of why the "war between science and religion" is really a 20th century phenomenon. Professor Principe's voice is easy to listen to, and the length of the series is just right. I highly recommend it.

    5. Another excellent Teaching Company course, this one focusing on the history of the relatinship between science and religion beginning with Augustine and running through the rise of Fundamentalism in the early 1900s in America, focusing especially on Galileo, evolution, first and second causes, and the natural/supernatural relationship.Principe's argument is twofold:1) Historically, there is not a conflict between science and religion. Not that there haven't been occasional moments of tension and [...]

    6. I went into this thinking it would be more of the same, "science is everything and religion is a foolish superstition" kind of thing that we hear so much of, but it turned out to be so positive. Professor Principe gave an amazing background of some of the most important scientists out there and how their religiosity was a part of their science - these are people like Isaac Newton and the Boyle fellow who pioneered pressure. The main thing that i found most uplifting was the revelation that scien [...]

    7. This 12 lecture series was disappointing to me, particularly following my completion of the Skepticism 101 lectures from Michael Shermer. Dr Principe presented well, but began with faulty logic that carried throughout the lectures. It seemed to be more of an apology for the Catholic Church and it's misdeeds, particularly in dealing with Galileo. I was hoping the lectures would deal with religions in general (from early pagan cults to the Branch Davidians), inclusive of all religions, not just Ch [...]

    8. This is the first of the Great Courses series that I have listened to. It was fantastic. It lays out the history between Science and Religion and shows that the conflict between them, that many of us today see as unavoidable, is a relativly modern occurance. Throughout most of human history, and indeed throughout most of Christian history, science and religion were seen as inseperable. They both attempted to explain the world around us and it was, more often than not, religion which stepped asid [...]

    9. I enjoyed Prof. Principe's lecture on the history of science and religion from St. Augusta up to present day. His 30min lectures on Fundamentalism and Darwin: Responses to Evolution (lecture 10 & 11) are concluded by renouncing 'extremists' on both sides. I enjoyed listening to his passion for Newton, Boyle, St. Augusta, and Georges LemaƮtre. Highly educational and enjoyable topic!

    10. . I didn't always agree with the lecturer, it is certainly thought provoking. It provides a fascinating historical background (one that is often overlooked) to the interactions between and Science and religion. I was surprised to learn some of the sources for the present day notion of an antithesis between the two.

    11. I listened to this on 6 CDs. Wow! Very interesting and enlightening. I felt like I was taking a history course in college again.

    12. There is of course no conflict between science and (high) theology.Another great course from The Teaching Company, and the 102nd (albeit another audio) book I have finished this year.

    13. This series of lectures should be required listening for fundamentalists on both sides of the "war" between science and religion.

    14. Very good treatment of ongoing perception of conflict between these two subjects. Presented without bias the lectures offer a view of the changing mindset of people throughout the scientific era.
