Summary Book Review Ernan McMullin and Critical Realism in the Science-theology Dialogue by Paul Laurence Allen:
Download or read book Ernan McMullin and Critical Realism in the Science-theology Dialogue written by Paul Laurence Allen and published by Ashgate Publishing, Ltd.. This book was released on 2006 with total page 201 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Scientists, philosophers and theologians have wrestled repeatedly with the question of whether knowledge is similar or different in their various understandings of the world and God. Although agreement is still elusive, the epistemology of critical realism, associated with Ian Barbour, John Polkinghorne and Arthur Peacocke, remains widely credible. Relying on the lifetime work of philosopher Ernan McMullin, this book expands our understanding of critical realism beyond a permanent stand off between the subjective and objective, whether in science or theology. Critical realism illuminates the subject and the objectively known simultaneously. Responding to criticisms made against it, this book defends critical realism in science and theology with a specific role to play in our understanding of God.

Summary Book Review "Public Religion" and the Pancasila-based State of Indonesia by Benyamin Fleming Intan:
Download or read book "Public Religion" and the Pancasila-based State of Indonesia written by Benyamin Fleming Intan and published by Peter Lang. This book was released on 2006 with total page 277 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: «Public Religion» and the Pancasila-Based State of Indonesia: An Ethical and Sociological Analysis analyzes the public role of religion in Indonesian society from the pre-independence period to the end of Suharto's New Order government. It offers constructive suggestions regarding how Indonesian religion can play a significant role within the framework of Pancasila, Indonesia's national ideology. Based on a Christian-Muslim dialogue, it is only within the realm of civil society that Indonesian religion will be able to promote the ideas of democracy, tolerance, and human rights in Indonesian public affairs. In short, far from being anti-pluralist, Indonesian religion evolves as a liberating force in the life of society, nation, and state.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What do we know about the history, literature, and religion of Judaism in its formative age? How do we know it, and why does it matter? In Studying Classical Judaism, renowned scholar and author Jacob Neusner addresses these and other important questions.

He points out the core-belief of normative Judaism and reveals the methodological underpinnings of the most cogent and up-to-date interpretations of the texts that determined classical Judaism.
Summary Book Review Studies on Ancient Christianity by :

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This third collection of articles by Henry Chadwick brings together a series of studies on Augustine, written in light of the new texts now available, and on other individual Christian authors of antiquity, in other words of the age when Christianity was acquiring its now familiar shape. A number of papers published here appear in print for the first time, or make accessible to English readers studies which first saw the light in German. These include a substantial discussion of the idea of conscience, important in the highly ethical context of early Christianity, and a study of ancient anthologies, and are complemented by other essays on general themes in the history of the early Church.
Summary Book Review Toward a Jewish Theology of Liberation by Marc H. Ellis:
Download or read book Toward a Jewish Theology of Liberation written by Marc H. Ellis and published by Baylor University Press. This book was released on 2004 with total page 260 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Turmoil still grips the Middle East and fear now paralyses post-9/11 America. The comforts and challenges of this book are thus as timely as when first published in 1987. With new reflections on the future of Judaism and Israel, Ellis underscores the enduring problem of justice. The use of liberation theology to make connections between the Holocaust and contemporary communities from the Third World reminds both Jews and oppressed Christians that they share a common ground in the experiences of abandonment, suffering, and death. The connections also reveal that Jews and Christians share a common cause in the battle against idolatry -- represented now by obsessions for personal affluence, national security, and ethnic survival. According to Ellis, Jews and Christians must never allow the reality of anti-Semitism to become an excuse to evade solidarity with the oppressed peoples -- be they African, Asian, Latin American or, especially Palestinian.

Summary Book Review Naturalism and Social Science by David Thomas:
Download or read book Naturalism and Social Science written by David Thomas and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 1980-01-24 with total page 222 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This 1979 text addresses the ways in which the dominant theories in large areas of Western social science have been subject to strong criticisms, particularly of their supposed philosophical deficiencies. In the philosophy of science, this resulted in empiricist views being replaced by an emphasis on the potential obstinacy of theory in the face of the empirical world. After introducing this contemporary philosophy of science, Dr Thomas uses it to argue that social study can both retain the natural scientific commitment to the constraint of the external world and assimilate the sorts of philosophical criticisms that were made of the old social scientific theories. In particular, he shows that social study understood in terms of the new philosophy of science can give an account of the former's distinctive concerns with issues of the meaning and value of social life. Dr Thomas supports his abstract arguments by detailed case studies.
