Editorial Reviews

Review

‘In this forceful and fascinating polemic, a leading historian and sociologist of the sciences takes up arms against recent calls for dialogue between science and religion. In a survey of past centuries of conflict, censorship and apologetics, and a telling analysis of modern initiatives to establish new kinds of relations between science and religion, Gingras argues that the sciences have achieved autonomous status by building social organizations not to be reconciled with the claims of faith. This book represents an important and provocative intervention in a debate of great contemporary significance.’
Simon Schaffer, Professor of History of Science, University of Cambridge

‘Yves Gingras’ gripping account of four centuries of conflict between religion and science provides a wonderful antidote to the insistent calls for “dialogue”.’
Alan Sokal, Professor of Physics, New York University

"Science and Religion is a useful corrective to simplistic accounts of the relations between science and religion in the past."
William R. Shea in Fides et Historia
