Einstein, Polanyi, and the laws of nature by Lydia Jaeger( )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 1,678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is the relationship between religious belief and the study of nature, between theology and science? This is the fundamental preoccupation of the three different studies brought together in Einstein, Polanyi, and the Laws of Nature. By exploring the highly original yet little known thought of Michael Polanyi, Jaeger highlights the inherent personal investment in any quest for knowledge, including the scientific enterprise, thus raising the question of the objectivity of human knowledge. Considered to be the greatest mind of the twentieth century, Albert Einstein saw scientific research as the fruit of the "cosmic religion." His response to the question of the relationship between faith and science also receives the close analysis it deserves. Finally, Jaeger is interested in science's propensity to use the concept of laws of nature, a concept also found in the Bible. By examining the similarities and differences, she paves the way for interdisciplinary dialogue. The synthesis of these three complimentary studies brings out the complicity between belief and knowledge, thus establishing a bridge between two noble human activities: faith and scientific research. It will be of interest to all serious followers of the ongoing science and religion dialogue."--Publisher's website
What the heavens declare : science in the light of creation by Lydia Jaeger( )

5 editions published between 1901 and 2012 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In her latest book, What the Heavens Declare, Lydia Jaeger provides a detailed analysis of the role of the theistic doctrine of creation in the rise of modern science, with a particular focus on the natural order. As the author explains, despite the common use of the expression "laws of nature" by both scientists and laymen, there is a long-standing tradition of philosophical debate about, and even refusal of, the notion that laws of nature might exist independently of a divine or human mind. This work attempts to account for natural order in harmony with the religious worldview that significantly contributed to the original context in which modern science began: the world seen as the creation of the triune God."--Publisher's website
Lois de la nature et raisons du coeur : les convictions religieuses dans le débat épistémologique contemporain by Lydia Jaeger( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in French and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La première partie de la thèse analyse le rôle que jouent les convictions religieuses dans le débat épistémologique contemporain. L'examen porte sur quatre épistémologues - David Armstrong, Nancy Cartwright, David Lewis et Bas van Fraassen - et deux cosmologues - Lee Smolin et John Wheeler. Pour chacun d'eux, je fais apparaître les liens qui existent entre sa posture religieuse et son compte rendu de la légalité naturelle. La deuxième partie met la discussion en corrélation avec l'idée de création. Celle-ci amène à postuler un ordre naturel existant objectivement, qui demande, pour son exploration, une approche multidisciplinaire. Comme cet ordre n'est qu'une réalité avant-dernière, en tant qu'œuvre du Créateur personnel, on peut faire justice à plusieurs critiques formulées à l'égard du réalisme classique. On aboutit de la sorte à une vision de la connaissance qui, tout en étant réaliste, reconnaît le caractère situé, existentiel et relationnel de tout acte de savoir
