Overview

The Encyclopedia of Sciences and Religions will map the (self-)identities of current and prospective participants in a scholarly area ‘Science and Religion’ - i.e., all academic disciplines, religious traditions, across all cultures - by implicitly drawing out from each how it sees itself in relation to the conceptual domains of ‘Science’ and ‘Religion’, how each, within its own disciplinary/tradition bounds, treats a set of key issues/themes/concepts that have thus far emerged as central to the area ‘Science and Religion’, and also additional issues/themes/concepts that are seen to be of relevance to ‘Science and Religion’ engagement as seen from the perspective of each potential participant therein. Special entries will be devoted to key thinkers and key concepts in the field. The Encyclopedia will provide not only a comprehensive, up-to-date picture of how a so-called ‘Science and Religion’ discourse/dialogue has thus far been treated, but as well, a starting point for new lines of inquiry, and an invitation for fresh perspectives on the possibilities for engagement between and across sciences and religions.
