A 3x3 classification of science-and-religion

Willem Drees, Willem B. Drees

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


The variety of discussions on the relationship between science and religion is confusing. In this paper I propose a classification of areas of discussion. This classification distinguishes three views of religion and three challenges related to the rise of the sciences. Therefore, the classification has 3 x 3 areas. It is argued that this classification has certain advantages over other existing ones.
