About this book

Nature, Science and Religion is about the complicated and provocative ways nature, science, and religion intersect in real settings where people attempt to live in harmony with the physical environment. Scholars of philosophy, religious studies, and science and technology have been at the forefront of critiquing the roles of religion and science in human interactions with the natural world. Meanwhile, researchers in the environmental sciences have encountered disciplinary barriers to examining the possibility that religious beliefs influence social-ecological behaviors and processes simply because the issue resists quantitative assessment.

The contributors to Nature, Science and Religion explore how scientific knowledge and spiritual beliefs are engaged to shape natural resource management, environmental activism, and political processes.
