|Abstract||The main purpose of the present paper is — proceeding from a real-life showcase particularly rich in scientific and epistemological implications — to discern, expose, interpret, and thus, to contribute to both the rehabilitation and the renewal of a mysterious but indubitable unity of both « objective » and « subjective » factors of the scientific knowledge acquisition, — the unity so manifestly present at the very heart of the scientific pursuit of Johannes Kepler and Isaac Newton, or, for that matter, of Albert Einstein, but resolutely passed over if not openly scorned by modern science. The chosen here showcase of a tragic but fruitful (dis)unity of these two factors might help us both to climb down the abstract, pseudo-philosophical fence of the mainstream professional theological / epistemological discourse and to back up our scientific guesswork by some Judaeo-Christian theological insights into the origins of man. We hope, among other things, that a philosopher and theologian would find here some novel lines of hermeneutic and biblical exegesis inspired, if not — as loved to formulate it Kurt Gödel, — « forced on us » by « mad pursuit » of the scientific truth by an agnostic biologist, and that a biologist, agnostic or not, would find here, in his turn, some novel, philosophically and theologically inspired scientific insights, — even if as yet formally unspeakable, unthinkable, unbelievable, — into the biological origins and nature of man.|
