Science, Theology and Cultural Dynamics – Volume 10 of our series Studies in Science and Theology. Yearbook of the European Society for the Study of Science and Theology was published in autumn 2005.
It is organised in four parts: Human Nature, Sociobiology and Culture has articles casting light on aggression, altruism, the need for a participative consciousness, and human psychology. The articles in Methodology, Epistemology and Culture discuss and introduce new models to relate science and theology and deal with the role of authority and experience in science and theology. Theology, Technology and Culture questions the relevance and discusses the benefits and deficits of technology for the science and religion debate on the basis of computer modelling, information theory, nanotechnology and the relationship between nature and culture. The last group of essays on Theology, Science and Culture struggle with the notions of culture, knowledge, wisdom and purpose from theological, philosophical and scientific perspectives. Some papers in this section deal with bible exegesis, education and historical cultural comparisons related to the science and religion dialogue.
Contributors among others are Marie Vejrup Nielsen, Hubert Meisinger, John Teske, Michael Stenmark, Niels Henrik Gregersen, Noreen Herzfeld, F. LeRon Shults, and Peter M. J. Hess.
