Summary

Nature, science, religion. Each term carries with it claims to truth: nature inasmuch as it conveys our beliefs of how things naturally are and should be; science in and through its methods, evident results, and institutional prestige; and religion in its objects and the commitments they generate among devotees.

Nature, Science and Religion Summary

Nature, Science and Religion: Intersections Shaping Society and the Environment by Catherine M. Tucker

This book is about the complicated and provocative ways nature, science, and religion intersect in real settings where people attempt to live in harmony with the physical environment. Scholars of philosophy, religious studies, and science and technology have been at the forefront of critiquing the roles of religion and science in human interactions with the natural world. Meanwhile, researchers in the environmental sciences have encountered disciplinary barriers to examining the possibility that religious beliefs influence social-ecological behaviours and processes simply because the issue resists quantitative assessment. The contributors to this book explore how scientific knowledge and spiritual beliefs are engaged to shape natural resource management, environmental activism, and political processes.
