This is a sustained philosophical argument about the nature of knowledge involved in claims about science and about religion and the relationship between the two fields of understanding. The author's argument is that science and theology, while different in several crucial respects, are not incompatible. The basis for this claim is that science "is a human intellectual activity whose aim is to produce knowledge claims that will maximize utility," while theology "is a human intellectual activity whose aim is to produce knowledge claims about ultimate purpose." The two areas of knowledge are grounded in two very basic different kinds of human needs and experiences, and they have different aims. One of the "payoffs" of clarifying the nature of truth claims in science and theology is the resultant ability to reframe truth claims about creation and about miracles so as to dissolve the seemingly intractable conflict between scientific and theological ways of thinking.
-Publisher


In this introduction to religion and science, William Chalker outlines the nature of knowledge involved in claims about science and about religion and deliniates a compatible relationship between these two fields of understanding. According to Chalker, both science and theology have their proper realms, and while they are different in several crucial respects, they are not incompatible.
