Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Are There Limits to Science?, edited by Gillian Straine.

This book is the result of the 2016 conference of the UK’s Science and Religion Forum which brings together leading scientific and theological thinkers to reflect together on key issues. 

The focus was a timely one: Are there limits to Science? Both inside and outside of the academy, the questions of where we seek knowledge and how to discern truth remain high on the agenda. By asking this key question, the conference brought together philosophers, theologians, practitioners and scientists to discuss how they judge these boundary areas and the lay of the land ahead. The resulting conversation is wide-ranging, touching on the discernment of God in nature, the boundary between the physical and mental in human identity, and the importance of taking history seriously. There can be no doubt that the questions and the insights offered in this book are invaluable to anyone seeking to explore the limits of the field of science and religion, and to reflect on its wider implications.
