Professional reviews

"How science and religion co-exist, cooperate, and compete in man's search for truth forms the basis for 12 lectures given by Professor Lawrence M. Principe of Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Principe examines both science and religion from a historical perspective, digging through dogma and rhetoric to find the methodology, definitional structure, and sources of knowledge for each. Principe's clear speaking style educates without condescension. His approach assumes a high level of intelligence and interest, without requiring an advanced scientific or theological degree to decipher his meaning. While the subject matter does not lend itself to casual listening, Principe's meticulous research and precise presentation offer insight to an attentive audience. R.L.L.
