Among the many parallels he identifies are patterns of historical development in quantum physics and in Christology; wrestling with perplexities such as quantum interpretation and the problem of evil; and the drive for an overarching view in the Grand Unified Theories of physics and in Trinitarian theology. Both theology and science are propelled by a desire to understand the world through experienced reality, and Polkinghorne explains that their viewpoints are by no means mutually exclusive.
About the Author
Praise For Quantum Physics and Theology: An Unexpected Kinship…
“Polkinghorne explores the underlying truth-seeking connection between science and religion and executes this task with a rare blend of precision and clarity.”—Nathan J. Hallanger, The Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences, Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley
-Nathan J. Hallanger
“Polkinghorne’s life project is to show that science and religion are two rational structures between which there are significant homologies. It is most fascinating in Quantum Physics and Theology to observe him demonstrate this thesis.”—Miroslav Volf, Yale Divinity School
