People of science, people of faith, please…

Please read the comment threads on the previous two posts, my most substantive posts ever, perhaps. It seems to me that we are getting somewhere, on our efforts to theorize the arts and sciences so as to do full justice to the natural sciences without demeaning the humanities, or the cultural and religious ways of knowing…. I need your thoughts. And please ask others to read, and comment, too. (It’s okay to be saucy, and gut-honest direct, but because these are such difficult issues we’re tackling, all of us will also need thoughtfulness, humility, and respect. (I myself have been called to account, quite rightfully, for not realizing that my own wording was going beyond passionate into the realm of disrespectful…to my great regret. So we’ll keep on calling each other to account.)

    Thanks, Bethany and Rick, for your very thoughtful and stimulating responses under other posts. (Sometimes I am writing to you better in my off-line work than in my responses here. In either case, the comments never fail to help to keep my thinking directed and re-energized.)

    And if anyone knows Andrew Best at Stanford, or if YOU are Andrew, please show up here, so that I can email you directly. Thanks so much!
