Science, Technology & Religion

On Ian Barbour

The following link is a reflection on Ian Babour and his work in the area of science and religion interaction. Barbour (who died just before Christmas) was hugely influential upon my own thinking about the relationships between science and religion and theology and technology. I often talk about his four-fold typology of relationships in theology classes, and his idea of ‘appropriate technology’ informed one of the thrusts of my PhD thesis.

See Farewell to Ian Barbour by Connor Wood over at Patheos: Science on Religion.

Here are a few of his many books:


“Religion and Science (Gifford Lectures Series)” (Ian G. Barbour)


“When Science Meets Religion: Enemies, Strangers, or Partners?” (Ian G. Barbour)


“Myths, Models and Paradigms” (Ian G. Barbour)


“Religion in an Age of Science (Gifford Lectures 1989-1991, Vol 1)” (Ian G. Barbour)


“Ethics in an Age of Technology: Gifford Lectures, Volume Two” (Ian G. Barbour)


“Issues in Science and Religion (Torchbooks)” (Ian G. Barbour)
