Galileo in Rome : the rise and fall of a troublesome genius by William R Shea( Book )

23 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 1,135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book offers a fascinating account of the six trips Galileo made to Rome, from his first visit at age 23, as an unemployed mathematician, to his final fateful journey to face the Inquisition. The authors reveal why the theory that the Earth revolves around the Sun, set forth in Galileo's Dialogue, stirred a hornet's nest of theological issues, and they argue that, despite these issues, the Church might have accepted Copernicus if there had been solid proof. More interesting, they show how Galileo dug his own grave. To get the imprimatur, he brought political pressure to bear on the Roman Censor. He disobeyed a Church order not to teach the heliocentric theory. And he had a character named Simplicio (which in Italian sounds like simpleton) raise the same objections to heliocentrism that the Pope had raised with Galileo. The authors show that throughout the trial, until the final sentence and abjuration, the Church treated Galileo with great deference, and once he was declared guilty commuted his sentence to house arrest."--Jacket
Oracles of science : celebrity scientists versus God and religion by Karl Giberson( Book )

24 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Oracles of Science examines the popular writings of the six scientists who most influenced our perceptions of science. Biologists Stephen Jay Gould, Richard Dawkins, and Edward O. Wilson and physicists Carl Sagan, Stephen Hawking, and Steven Weinberg have become public intellectuals, articulating a much larger vision for science and what role it should play in the modern worldview. The scientific prestige and literary eloquence of these thinkers combine to transform them into what can only be called "oracles of science." Curiously, the leading "oracles of science" are predominantly secular in ways that don't reflect the distribution of religious beliefs within the scientific community. Many of them are even hostile to religion, creating a false impression that science as a whole is incompatible with religion." "Karl Giberson and Mariano Artigas offer an informed critique of the views of these six scientists, carefully distinguishing science from philosophy and religion in their writings. This book will be welcomed by those who are disturbed by the tone of the public discourse on the relationship between science and religion and will challenge others to reexamine their own preconceptions about this crucial topic."--Jacket
Negotiating Darwin : the Vatican confronts evolution, 1877-1902 by Mariano Artigas( Book )

15 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Publisher-supplied data) Drawing on primary sources made available to scholars only after the archives of the Holy Office were unsealed in 1998, Negotiating Darwin chronicles how the Vatican reacted when six Catholics--five clerics and one layman--tried to integrate evolution and Christianity in the decades following the publication of Darwin's The Origin of Species. As Mariano Artigas, Thomas F. Glick, and Rafael A. Martínez reconstruct these cases, we see who acted and why, how the events unfolded, and how decisions were put into practice. With the long shadow of Galileo's condemnation hanging over the Church as the Scientific Revolution ushered in new paradigms, the Church found it prudent to avoid publicly and directly condemning Darwinism and thus treated these cases carefully. The authors reveal the ideological and operational stance of the Vatican and describe its secret deliberations. In the process, they provide insight into current debates on evolution and religious belief
The mind of the universe : understanding science and religion by Mariano Artigas( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Mind of the Universe, written by a philosopher and physicist, provides a study in which a competent presentation of physical discoveries is combined with a rational search for philosophical presuppositions of science. An important contribution to the dialogue between religion and science, it will inspire new attempts at bridging science and philosophy in their common search for the hidden meaning of the new scientific theories
Galileo observed : science and the politics of belief by William R Shea( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Knowing things for sure : science and truth by Mariano Artigas( Book )

23 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In science it is obvious that we are certain about many things, but among philosophers there is little agreement as to why we know these things. In Knowing Things for Sure physicist and realist philosopher Mariano Artigas traces the confusion to non-realist philosophies and argues that practitioners of experimental science do reach logical truths about reality. This comprehensive survey of the philosophy of science and mini-history of science uses historical evidence to discuss the aim of science and show how scientists achieve inter-subjective agreement, reach truths about reality, and ultimately impact philosophy."--P.

Galileo e il Vaticano : storia della Pontificia Commissione di Studio sul Caso Galileo : (1981-1992) by Mariano Artigas( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in Italian and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La historia del proceso y de la condena de Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) continúa siendo un tema actual. En 1979 Juan Pablo II, siguiendo el camino trazado por el Concilio Vaticano II, manifestó el deseo de que teólogos e historiadores examinasen a fondo el caso Galileo. El resultado fue la creación de la Comisión de Estudio del Caso Galileo, dirigida, en su fase final, por el cardenal Paul Poupard, y clausurada solemnemente en el Vaticano en 1992. Este libro reconstruye minuciosamente, a partir de la documentación de archivo, la trayectoria de la Commisión y examina criticamente sus frutos. De esta manera, se ofrece a los estudiosos un material inédito que permite la adecuada valoración del intento del Vaticano de afrontar con un sereno espíritu crítico su propio papel en el complejo caso Galileo, aportando nuevas luces sobre su secular historia.
