Creative tension essays on science and religion by Michał Heller ( )
5 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The voice of a renowned professor of philosophy in Poland, who is also a Roman Catholic priest, is introduced to the United States in this collection of his provocative essays on the interplay of science and religion. Michael Heller progressively outlines systematic steps that might lead to a peaceful coexistence of these traditionally separate fields of study. Some essays have their roots in the author's work in physics and cosmology, while others present his theories on the language of God, creation, and transcendence, inspired by his work in the applications of so-called noncommutat
Ultimate explanations of the universe by Michał Heller ( )
10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Addresses our attempts to find ultimate explanations using rational argument, mathematics and physical law. This book demonstrates that we have come a long way but that the 'ultimate' may remain elusive
A comprehensible universe the interplay of science and theology by George V Coyne ( )
15 editions published in 2008 in English and Polish and held by 505 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. After many philosophical and theological adventures the Greek concept of rationality laid the foundations of a revolutionary way of thinking: the scientific method, which transformed the world. But looking at the newest fruits of the world's rationality - relativity theory, quantum mechanics, the unification of physics, quantum gravity - the question arises: what are the limits of the scientific method? The principal tenet of rationality is that you should never stop asking questions until everything has been answered ... "A Comprehensible Universe is a thoughtful book by two authors who have professional expertise in physics and astronomy and also in theology. They are exceptionally well informed about the history of the relation between science and theology, and they maintain throughout their discussion a respect for empirical evidence and a dedication to rationality. Even though I do not agree with all of their conclusions on matters of great complexity I am impressed by the fairness of their argumentation." Abner Shimony, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy and Physics, Boston University

Theoretical foundations of cosmology : introduction to the global structure of space-time by Michał Heller ( Book )
4 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book's principal aim is to clarify fundamental concepts, decipher mathematical structures used to model space-time and relativistic worlds, and to disclose their physical meaning. After each chapter, philosophical implications of the presented material are commented upon. Both special and general theories of relativity are presented in the book with the stress on their global aspects. Although global mathematical methods are extensively used throughout the book, the definitions of new concepts, short comments and examples make reading smooth without the need to consult other textbooks or re
