The Religion And Science Debate: Why Does It Continue? (The Terry Lectures Series)
1 The Religion And Science Debate: Why Does It Continue? (The Terry Lectures Series)
Yale University Press 2009 030015299X / 9780300152999 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
Eighty-one years after America witnessed the Scopes trial over the teaching of evolution in public schools, the debate between science and religion continues. In this book scholars from a variety of disciplines sociology, history, science, and theology provide new insights into the contemporary dialogue as well as some perspective suggestions for delineating the responsibilities of both the scientific and religious spheres. Why does the tension between science and religion continue? How have those tensions changed during the past one hundred years? How have those tensions impacted the public debate about so-called "intelligent design" as a scientific alternative to evolution? With wit and wisdom the authors address the conflict from its philosophical roots to its manifestations within American culture. In doing so, they take an important step toward creating a society that reconciles scientific inquiry with the human spirit. This book, which marks the one hundredth anniversary of The Terry Lecture Series, offers a unique perspective for anyone interested in the debate between science and religion in America.

The View Beyond: Sir Francis Bacon: Alchemy, Science, Mystery (the View Series), Dave Patrick, Mark Rylanc
2 Dave Patrick, Mark Rylanc The View Beyond: Sir Francis Bacon: Alchemy, Science, Mystery (the View Series)
2011 1905398220 / 9781905398225 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
This most unusual volume brings together an extraordinary variety of views on Sir Francis Bacon (1561 1626) and on his relevance for our time. There are contributions from academics, esotericists, artists and scientists even from alternative politicians, astrologers and the historians of Spiritualism and Theosophy. They all go to show what a rich legacy the great contemporary of Shakespeare, and conceivably author of Shakespeare, has left us. Exactly 450 years after his birth, Bacon is relevant for our time. Credited by some with providing the whole justification and method for scientific enquiry, he nonetheless represents an era before science and the humanities became separate, and his work is full of the Christian faith, alchemy and some would say the esoteric. Today, it is much less safe to rely on scientific materialism to explain our world than it was even ten or twenty years ago; our certainties are crumbling, be they our financial structures or our understanding of the universe. To take another look at Bacon is to refresh ourselves with what might have been, and might still be. This book is a continuing debate. The contrast between the perspectives is refreshing, and it gives food for thought to the alternative reader and the mainstream student alike.

Tao Te Ching: Updated with Over 100 Photographs by Jane English, Lao Tsu
3 Lao Tsu Tao Te Ching: Updated with Over 100 Photographs by Jane English
Vintage 2011 0307949303 / 9780307949301 TRADE PAPERBACK Used; Very Good 
Small remainder mark For nearly two generations, this bestselling translation of the Tao Te Ching has been the standard for those seeking access to the wisdom of Taoist thought. Now Jane English and her long-time editor, Toinette Lippe, have refreshed and revised the translation, so that it more faithfully reflects the Classical Chinese in which it was first written, while taking into account changes in our own language and eliminating any lingering infelicities. This beautiful oversized edition features over a hundred new photographs by Jane English that help express the vast spirit of the Tao. Also included is an introduction by the well-known writer and scholar of philosophy and comparative religion, Jacob Needleman. Lao Tsu’s philosophy is simple: Accept what is in front of you without wanting the situation to be other than it is. Study the natural order of things and work with it rather than against it, for to try to change what is only sets up resistance. Nature provides everything without requiring payment or thanks. It does so without discrimination. So let us present the same face to everyone and treat them all as equals, however they may behave. If we watch carefully, we will see that work proceeds more quickly and easily if we stop "trying," if we stop putting in so much extra effort, if we stop looking for results. In the clarity of a still and open mind, truth will be reflected. Te—which may be translated as "virtue" or "strength"—lies always in Tao meaning "the way" or "natural law." In other words: Simply be.
