Description

Kenneth Vaux advocates an Abrahamic theology as a dynamic and ethical axis for science and technology and argues for its continuing salience for a vital and humane science. He demonstrates a historical correlation between an Abrahamic theological tradition (monotheism and venturism) and the rise of science. Vaux illustrates these developments in the work of six scientists: Avicenna, Boyle, Schweitzer, and Teilhard, as well as contemporaries Amartya Sen and Leon Kass. In the course of his discussion, Vaux engages the contemporary dialogue between religion and science. ""Ken Vaux has shown what a powerful impulse Abrahamic monotheism has been to the rise and ongoing ethical guidance of science."" --John Polkinghorne, Professor of Mathematical Physics, Anglican Priest, Templeton Prize winner Kenneth Vaux is Emeritus Professor of Ethics at the University of Illinois College of Medicine and currently serves as the Professor of Theological Ethics at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary and as a member of the Graduate Faculty at Northwestern University.
