Religion and Science as Forms of Life : Anthropological Insights into Reason and Unreason Hardback
Edited by Carles Salazar, Joan Bestard
The relationships between science and religion are about to enter a new phase in our contemporary world, as scientific knowledge has become increasingly relevant in ordinary life, beyond the institutional public spaces where it traditionally developed.
The purpose of this volume is to analyze the relationships, possible articulations and contradictions between religion and science as forms of life: ways of engaging human experience that originate in particular social and cultural formations.
Contributions expound on this theoretical and ethnographic research into different manifestations of scientific and religious cultures in the contemporary world.
