An encounter between science and religion preliminary observations

Abstract

It is, at the same time, one It is appropriate to introduce the present volume by explaining what was in our minds as we planned the organization of this Conference on Science and Religion. In order to avoid any misunderstanding it is emphasized at the outset that these ‘preliminary observations’ do not constitute a synoptic attempt to introduce the articles and summaries contained in this book. In this respect the reader is confidently left to his or her resources. Besides, although the pronouns ‘we’, ‘us’ and ‘our’ are used frequently, the observations made and developed in the paragraphs which follow are presented by one person only, who is solely responsible for their contents. The intention is to describe what was seen and experienced at the point where all the letters and telephone calls met, where they heightened or lowered existing tensions, depressions and expectations, and where they required urgent (new) decisions to be taken. In fact, the organization of this Conference, which truly exacted great industry, was particularly gratifying in the many ways that it established and extended personal contacts. And it was a pleasure to receive so many letters in which participants expressed their thanks for what had proved to be for them an unexpectedly rewarding encounter!
