After arguing that a correct interpretation of his views on 'things above reason' depends upon reading his works in the context of theological controversies in seventeenth-century England, Professor Wojcik details exactly how Boyle's three specific categories of things which transcend reason - the incomprehensible, the inexplicable, and the unsociable - affected his conception of what a natural philosopher (...)

  12. Robert Boyle and the Limits of Reason: A Study in the Relationship Between Science and Religion in Seventeenth-Century England.Jan W. Wojcik - 1992 - Dissertation, University of Kentucky
    When Robert Boyle returned from his studies abroad in 1644, he found an England splintered into religious sects, each claiming to have attained a uniquely true understanding of the Christian religion.
