Regaining sanity for the earth

Price per Unit (piece): R150.00 (including 14 % tax)

For centuries science and faith have been drifting apart. Science lost its transcendent foundations, faith lost its credibility. Science conquered the future; faith got stuck in the past. Science unleashed unprecedented powers; faith became a private pastime. The economic and ecological consequences are catastrophic. Science and faith must reconnect and lead the way out of the crisis. Klaus Nürnberger is Professor emeritus and Senior Research Associate at the University of KwaZulu- Natal, South Africa. www.klaus-nurnberger.com.

Nürnberger is one of the most prolifi c and creative theologians in South Africa today. He argues passionately for science and religion to cooperate in redirecting our global culture toward what he calls "a vision of comprehensive optimal well being". (Prof Vincent Brümmer, Philosophy, Utrecht University)

The background to this book is the extreme concern shared by all leading thinkers of today about the loss of values and responsibility among infl uential elites world-wide. Utter selfi shness and cynicism seem not only sanctioned but propagated by the awe-inspiring performance of modern science, technology and the liberal economy. (Prof Egmont Rohwer, Analytical Chemistry, University of Pretoria)

Nürnberger brings together an amazing wealth of perspectives from the natural sciences, the social sciences, economics, ecology, philosophy, religious studies and theology into a coherent argument. There is nothing quite like this elsewhere in the available literature. (Prof Ernst Conradie, Theology, University of the Western Cape)
