  1. Science, Religion and Common Sense.Louis Caruana - 2012 - European Journal for Philosophy of Religion 4 (4):161--173.
    Susan Haack has recently attempted to discredit religion by showing that science is an extended and enhanced version of common sense while religion is not. I argue that Haack’s account is misguided not because science is not an extended version of common sense, as she says. It is misguided because she assumes a very restricted, and thus inadequate, account of common sense. After reviewing several more realistic models of common sense, I conclude that common sense is rich enough to allow (...)

    Is Religion Undermined By Evolutionary Arguments?Louis Caruana - 2010 - European Journal for Philosophy of Religion 2 (1):85 - 106.
    I examine three major antireligious arguments that are often proposed in various forms by cognitive and evolutionary scientists, and indicate possible responses to them. A fundamental problem with the entire debate arises because the term "religion" is too vague. So I reformulate the debate in terms of a less vague central concept: faith. Referring mainly to Aquinas on faith, I proceed by evaluating how the previously mentioned cognitive and evolutionary arguments fare when dealing with faith. The results show that some (...)

    The Force of Counter-Evidence in Science and Religion.Louis Caruana - 2009 - International Philosophical Quarterly 49 (3):361-374.
    The role of empirical evidence in scientific and in religious discourse has been revisited in a recent paper by John Worrall, who argues for the overlap between these two types of discourse and for the superiority of the former. His main thesis is that the epistemic attitude of natural science is superior because it is essentially related to evidence and falsifiability, whereby the search for counter-evidence is taken as the primary driving force for research. The epistemic attitude of religion, on (...)

    Nature, Science, and Critical Explicitation.Louis Caruana - 2018 - International Philosophical Quarterly 58 (1):93-105.
    Science has uncovered many mistakes that had been hidden for centuries among implicit everyday assumptions. When we make explicit what lies implicit within language, there is no guarantee that we will arrive at truth about the world. Many therefore assume that only science delivers truth. Recent debates on this issue often refer to Wilfred Sellars’s arguments against the pre-conceptual given but conclude that his additional insistence on the exclusivity of the scientific image of the world is unfounded. In this paper (...)

    God's Eternity and Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity.Louis Caruana - 2005 - Revista Portuguesa de Filosofia 61 (1):89 - 112.
    Max Jammer has recently proposed a model of God's eternity based on the special theory of relativity, offering it as an example of how theologians should take into account what physicists say about the world. I start evaluating this proposal by a quick look at the classic Boethius-Aquinas model of divine eternity. The major objection I advance against Jammer refers to Einstein's subtle kind of realism. I offer various reasons to show that Einstein's realism was minimal. Moreover, even this minimal (...)

    Science and Ethics: Tracing Parallels and Contrasts Between Science, Relativism and Utilitarianism.Louis Caruana - 2006 - Revista Portuguesa de Filosofia 62 (1):119-136.
    In its first section, dedicated to the topic science and relativism, the article argues against those who hold that science is absolutist while ethics is relativist. The point made is that the two disciplines are not all that different. There is an element of objectivity and an element of relativity in both. The article insists that there are two plausible ways in which these elements may be appreciated in both disciplines. The first way involves an analysis of precedents; the second (...)

    Universal Claims.Louis Caruana - 2011 - Forum Philosophicum: International Journal for Philosophy 16 (1):157-169.
    Claims are universal when they are not dependent on when and where they are made. Mathematics and the natural sciences are the typical disciplines that allow such claims to be made. Is the striving for universal claims in other disciplines justifi ed? Those who attempt to answer this question in the affi rmative often argue that it is justifi ed when mathematics and the natural sciences are taken as the model for other disciplines. In this paper I challenge this position (...)

Le mot refère-t-il à un processus qui pourrait être découvert empiriquement? Dans la première section, plusieurs manières de comprendre (...)

    L'interaction entre la science et la théologie est souvent considérée comme une interaction concernant leurs affirmations. Cet article examine comment cette interaction peut concerner leurs questions. Les questions concernant l'environnement seront le point focal parce que nous vivons dans un temps où la pertinence de ces questions augmente, et cette augmentation continuera probablement jusqu'à ce qu'elles soient prises au sérieux comme il le faut. La première étape de la discussion est une application d'un aspect de la philosophie de la science (...)

Ambas implican argumento razonado, la evaluación de las posibles explicaciones, la aclaración de conceptos, formas de interpretar la experiencia, la comprensión del significado actual de lo que ha ido antes que nosotros, y otras tareas tales eminentemente filosóficas. Ambos implican la filosofía, especialmente cuando entran en diálogo con los demás. De hecho, implican el pensamiento filosófico, aun cuando no sean conscientes de ello.
