A 2009-ben elhunyt bencés szerzetes teológus, fizikus, a Pápai Tudományos Akadémia egykori tagja posztumusz kötetében a korunkban divatos mesterséges intelligencia-kutatásokat veszi górcső alá. Generációkon keresztül életképes, ám káros tudományos divatnak minősítve tanulmánya tárgyát, a szerző nem csupán arra vállalkozik, hogy megmutassa a gondolkodó gépekről szőtt álmok képtelenségét, hanem mindezek történelmi, filozófiai gyökereinek is utána jár. Jáki professzor mint a tudományok álcája alatt virágzó tévhitek és rögeszmék üldözője, szkeptikusan nyilatkozik a várható eredmény felől. Nem számít arra, hogy megfordítja a divatok árját. Nézetei szerint e divatoknak, akár a járványoknak, le kell futniuk, mielőtt elhalnak. A hol redukcionizmusnak, hol fizikalizmusnak bélyegzett szemlélet magasröptű állításainak kritikusaként így ír: "A rejtélyes gépek a tudományos-fantasztikus írók kizárólagos termékei. Ők azonban soha nem közlik olvasóikkal, hogy amikor úgy három-négy évszázaddal ezelőtt a tudomány felemelkedett, a gépek érthetősége nyújtott bizonyosságot az embernek ahhoz, hogy van értelme szakítania a természet animisztikus felfogásával. Ez a természet rejtélyes volt, megjósolhatatlan, s ezért a tudományos módszerek által megfejthetetlen. Az embert pontosan azért nem lehet magyarázni e módszerek által, mert az ember több, mint egy gép. Bír olyasmivel, amivel egyetlen gép sem, a gondolkodás és a szabad döntéshozatal képességével"

"In the second part of the book Jaki continues his critique of science history with a number of meticulously argued theses about Christian monotheism. These include the view that Christian monotheism provides intellectual safeguards for the cosmological argument (an argument powerfully supported by modern scientific cosmology), that Christian monotheism vindicates the sense of purpose destroyed by materialist theories of evolution, and that Christian monotheism secures firm ethical guidelines against fearful abuses of scientific know-how."--Jacket

Cosmos and creator by Stanley L Jaki( Book )

8 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Can science measure the age of the universe? Can telescopes view the birth of the cosmos and bring man face to face with its creation? Or are these feats and prospects so many fashionable exaggerations or thinly veiled expressions of uneasiness? Where does science end, where does philosophy begin, and where does theology take over in a responsible discourse about the creation of the universe? Such are the main questions for which an answer is offered in this book
Praying the Psalms : a commentary by Stanley L Jaki( Book )

4 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the psalms are Old Testament prayers by origin, their teaching is very incomplete about trials, whose full meaning was revealed only through Christ's suffering. The psalms contain only faint hints about the fact that from God's perspective life really begins with death. But the psalms remain unparalleled expressions of souls who struggle to hold on to God no matter what and who experience moments of surpassing joy." "The purpose of this book is to help Christians grasp the basic meaning of each psalm so that the act of praying them might truly become an elevation of the mind to God. After providing general background on the psalms, including reflections on their use as both Jewish and Christian prayers, Stanley Jaki offers commentary on each individual psalm. He avoids exegetical minutiae, providing instead precisely enough explanation of the original cultural and theological setting of each psalm to let the usefulness of praying any of them fully emerge." "A Christian scholar, Jaki has recited all 150 psalms once every week for the past sixty years. As a result, his book not only offers learned insight into the meaning of the psalms but is also built on personal experience, making it a powerful devotional tool. Readers will find here helpful pointers for turning the recitation of the psalms into living prayers relevant to today's troubled world."--Jacket
