Summary

The dialogue between science and theology is no longer confined to discussing theology, physics and biology, but, as these essays make clear, sociology, psychology and neuroscience are now open for discussions between theologians and scientists.

The Human Person in Science and Theology Summary

The Human Person in Science and Theology by Niels Gregersen

The concept of human personhood is central to theology and philosophy. It has also become crucial in interdisciplinary fields like bio-ethics and theology and science. In this book leading European and American scholars explore the dimensions of personhood from scientific and theological perspectives. Contributors include Mary Midgely, Fraser Watts, Philip Hefner, Michael Welker, Dennis Bielfeldt and John A. Teske. This is an important collection and shows the extent to which the current dialogue between science and theology is no longer confined to discussing the relation of theology with physics and biology, but also with neuroscience, psychology and sociology.

The Human Person in Science and Theology Reviews

"There is probably no more contentious a subject matter today than the seminal question as to what constitutes and makes each of us a person . . . This book does not offer a watertight definition to what is one of our most complex and far-reaching debates. Such a goal is beyond the scope of this book. What it will do, however, is show that the different disciplines have much to learn from each other as well as richly resource the theologian, scientist and psychologist in what is rapidly becoming one of the most problematic issues in the 21st century."
Science & Christian Belief 14.1 (April 2002)
