On the symbiosis of science and religion: A jewish perspective

Norbert M. Samuelson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


Three theses are explored, the first two historical and the third philosophical-theological: (1) throughout most of the history of Western civilization, science and religion have been closely connected with each other, and each has benefited from the connection; (2) the belief that science and religion have always been in conflict is not based on the actual history of either set of institutions; and (3) structurally a relationship between the two institutions is in the interest of both. By religion here I mean specifically, but not exclusively, Judaism.
