Download E-books Reconciling Science And Religion: The Debate in Early-twentieth-century Britain (Science and Its Conceptual Foundations Series) PDF

By Peter J. Bowler

Although a lot has been written in regards to the energetic debates over technology and faith within the Victorian period, little awareness has been paid to their carrying on with significance in early twentieth-century Britain. Reconciling technology and Religion presents a accomplished survey of the interaction among British technological know-how and faith from the overdue 19th century to global warfare II.

Peter J. Bowler argues that not like the U.S., the place a robust fundamentalist competition to evolutionism built within the Nineteen Twenties (most famously expressed within the Scopes "monkey trial" of 1925), in Britain there has been a concerted attempt to reconcile technology and faith. Intellectually conservative scientists championed the reconciliation and have been supported by way of liberal theologians within the unfastened church buildings and the Church of britain, in particular the Anglican "Modernists." well known writers comparable to Julian Huxley and George Bernard Shaw sought to create a non-Christian faith related in a few respects to the Modernist place. more youthful scientists and secularists—including Rationalists comparable to H. G. Wells and the Marxists—tended to oppose those efforts, as did conservative Christians, who observed the liberal place as a betrayal of the real spirit in their faith. With the elevated social tensions of the Thirties, because the church buildings moved towards a neo-orthodoxy unfriendly to normal theology and biologists followed the "Modern Synthesis" of genetics and evolutionary conception, the proposed reconciliation fell apart.

Because the tensions among technological know-how and religion—and efforts at reconciling the two—are nonetheless greatly with us at the present time, Bowler's e-book might be vital for everybody drawn to those issues.
