Beyond Barbour: New Ways of Teaching the Relationship Between Science and Religion
Virtually, every college course on science and religion starts the same way: an overview of Ian Barbour’s (Religion and science: historical and contemporary issues. SCM Press, London, 1998) fourfold typology on the relationship between science and religion. He categorises interactions between these contested categories as fitting into four broad relationships of conflict, independence, dialogue or integration. This chapter introduces new pedagogical methods that reach Beyond Barbour for student introductions to science and religion.
