A comprehensible universe : the interplay of science and theology by George V Coyne( )

21 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and Polish and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why is our world comprehensible? This question seems so trivial that few people have dared to ask it. In this book we explore the deep roots of the mystery of rationality. The inquiry into the rationality of the world began over two-and-a-half-thousand years ago, when a few courageous people tried to understand the world with the help of reason alone, rejecting the comforting fabric of myth and legend."--Jacket

20 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perché il nostro mondo è comprensibile? La domanda sembra così banale, che solo pochi trovano il coraggio di porsela. In questo libro esploreremo le radici profonde del mistero della razionalità. L{u2019}indagine sulla razionalità del mondo cominciò duemilacinquecento anni or sono, quando un manipolo di audaci pensatori avviarono l{u2019}impresa di cercare di capire la Natura con la sola forza della ragione, rifiutando le comode e futili spiegazioni fornite da miti e leggende. Attraverso molte avventure filosofiche e teologiche, alla fine il concetto greco di razionalità pose le basi di un modo nuovo e rivoluzionario di pensare: quello del metodo scientifico, destinato a trasformare il mondo. Quando consideriamo i frutti più recenti dell{u2019}indagine sulla razionalità del mondo {u2013} la teoria della relatività, la meccanica quantistica, l{u2019}unificazione delle leggi fisiche, la gravitazione quantistica {u2013} viene da chiedersi: quali sono i limiti del metodo scientifico? Il principio fondamentale del pensiero razionale è che non dobbiamo mai smettere di porci domande, fintantoché a tutte non sia stata data una risposta

7 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and Polish and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The metaphor of the Book of Nature goes back to the age of the Fathers. St. Paul asserted that the works of God disclose His divinity, invisible being and eternal power [Rom 1,18-20]. St. Augustine preferred to speak of the vestigia Dei in creation. Nevertheless, at least in one place he invited the Manichaeans "to consider the whole of creation, regarding God as its author, by reading so to speak in the great book of nature (magnus liber naturae rerum)" [Cfr. Contra Faustum, 32,20], Here the metaphor emerges into full daylight and the context shows that it is used to a particular purpose, namely to convince his adversaries that the created world is good because God is the author." "In his Theologia Naturalis of 1436 Raymund Sebundus explained that humanity has two books at its disposal. They both come from God, but the Book of Creatures came first, being written by the finger of God at the creation of the world; the Book of Holy Scripture came later when men had become too blind to read the first book and had to be assisted. Yet there are no contradictions between the two books since they have the same author."--book jacket
