Andrew D. White:
A History of the Warfare of Science with Theology in Christendom - hardcover

ISBN: 1855065088

[SR: 12575559], Hardcover, [EAN: 9781855065086], Facsimile, Thoemmes Continuum, Thoemmes Continuum, Book, [PU: Thoemmes Continuum], Thoemmes Continuum, This extraordinary and scarce work by Andrew Dickson White (1832-1918), a professor and co-founder of Cornell University, is a unique study of the progress of humankind under two duelling forces: theology and science. White traces the evolution of human thought through a series of contrasts of ancient and modern theories of the world to show the impact of scientific research on the outmoded attitude of biblical literalism. Taking in an enormous range of subjects--including geography, astronomy, geology, chemistry, physics, medicine, psychology and economics--White illustrates the victory of empiricism over superstition, of scientific method and 'reason' over fundamentalism. White's aim was to show that the Church's attacks on scientific progress resulted in 'the direst evils both to religion and to science' and, more broadly, his study points up the dangers inherent in the religious control of higher education (at a time when nearly all universities in the USA and Europe were still under ecclesiastical control). Cornell University was established on the principle that education should not be under the control of political parties or religious sects--an idea greeted at the time with hostile accusations of Darwinism and atheism. But White was in fact deeply religious and his hope was to strengthen and purify theology by eliminating its antiscientific concerns. This excellent treatise finds special relevance today when academic freedom is once again under pressure from political and religious groups. It should now find a place in the libraries of all theologians, philosophers and historians. --a unique document, of interest to scholars of the history of theology, philosophy and science --still contentious issue of science vs. faith --special relevance today when academic freedom is again under threat , 12449, Theology, 297489, Angelology & Demonology, 7259444011, Anthropology, 172811, Apologetics, 12455, Catholic, 297490, Christology, 172814, Creationism, 171116, Ecclesiology, 12456, Ecumenism, 172812, Eschatology, 15755491, Ethics, 12387, Fundamentalism, 172804, Gnosticism, 7259445011, Historical, 7259446011, Liberation, 16009771, Mysticism, 297491, Pneumatology, 7259447011, Process, 300199, Prophecy, 12462, Protestant, 171117, Salvation Theory, 15755501, Systematic, 12290, Christian Books & Bibles, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 21, Reference, 11444, Almanacs & Yearbooks, 11448, Atlases & Maps, 2572, Careers, 11626, Catalogs & Directories, 11472, Consumer Guides, 11475, Dictionaries & Thesauruses, 11713, Encyclopedias & Subject Guides, 11823, English as a Second Language, 11761, Etiquette, 11773, Foreign Language Study & Reference, 11880, Genealogy, 11902, Quotations, 8975382011, Survival & Emergency Preparedness, 5267710011, Test Preparation, 11970, Words, Language & Grammar, 5267707011, Writing, Research & Publishing Guides, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 22, Religion & Spirituality, 12762, Agnosticism, 12764, Atheism, 12279, Buddhism, 12290, Christian Books & Bibles, 12472, Earth-Based Religions, 12489, Fiction, 12506, Hinduism, 12522, Islam, 12540, Judaism, 12621, New Age, 12689, Occult, 12735, Other Eastern Religions & Sacred Texts, 12761, Other Religions, Practices & Sacred Texts, 1873, Religious Art, 12779, Religious Studies, 12809, Spirituality, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11049, History & Surveys, 11019, Philosophy, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11070, Reference, 11019, Philosophy, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
