Wisdom or Knowledge?
Is scientific knowledge wisdom, or is it more limited - effective, useful, applicable, but not what we mean by wisdom? And is the wisdom of ages past embodied in the great religious traditions still wisdom for our time, as we have to face new challenges, opportunities and responsibilities? Contributors to this book consider various interactions between science, theology and culture from the viewpoints of philosophy, ethics, ecology, hermeneutics, history, Eastern Orthodoxy and with respect to a few selected practical issues. Some authors question whether science and theology are able to be sources of wisdom at all in our days. The volume reflects a variety of perspectives from different cultural backgrounds.
