Descripción

First Edition. xiv, 162 pp. Original cloth. Near Fine, in near fine dust jacket. 'This book is a systematic and articulate attempt to show the philosophical as well as sociological connections between science and Protestantism in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Hooykaas tends to oversimplify when he categorizes 'types' of Christianity and of philosophy. His own theological biases sometimes intrude. But the book remains important for anyone doing work in our field. It is excellent for an introductory discussion of the philosophical issues--and especially as regards the relation of the 'voluntaristic doctrine of God' to early modern natural philosophy. Hooykaas examines continental as well as English Calvinists and considers why and how they believed science should be cultivated: (1) to the glory of God and to the benefit of humankind; (2) empirically, in spite of human authorities; and (3) by using our hands. The book is a veritable mine of relevant biblical texts' (Richard S. Brooks & David K. Himrod, Science and Religion in the English Speaking World, 1600-1727: A Bibliographic Guide to the Secondary Literature, 2001, pp. 201-203). N° de ref. de la librería 05967

Sinopsis:

At a time when religion and science are seen by many to be antagonists locked in a battle to the death, Professor Hooykaas offers a startling proposition: modern science, he suggests, is in good part a product of the Judeo-Christian influence on western thought.
