Why Beliefs Matter: Reflections on the Nature of Science

Oup Oxford (2010)
Abstract
This book discusses deep problems about our place in the world with a minimum of jargon. It argues that 'absolutist' ideas dating back to Plato continue to mislead generations of mathematicians, physicists and theologians, and reveals the underlying reasons for the current conflicts between science and religion
