This book is a unique and provocative look at how science and religion - too often considered at odds with one another - are actually parallel ways of trying to make sense of the
same material world, each a voice intertwining with the other to halp shape true human understanding. With great humor and wit, the authors, one a Nobel laureate and the other an Israeli-American writer and student of religion - show how daily experience and seemingly innocuous questions such as "What is this mixture?" "How do I tell left from right?" and "How can one make the bitter sweet?" can lead to deeper philisophical issues concerning religion, art, and science. This book discusses what it means to be impure, whether humans have a right to dominate the environment, and the difference between the natural and the unnatural. The use of letters, e-mail, a play, the transcript of a trial, a debate and an autobiography are used to address contentious issues and eternal problems in fresh new ways. 362 pages including notes, credits, glossary of Hebrew and Yiddish terms, and an index. Illustrated with color photographs and black and white photos, drawings, letters and so forth. 8vo - over 7?" - 9?" tall.
