What if the Christian Doctrine of Contingency of the World Dissolved Obstacles for the Birth of Science Erected by Greek Philosophy? Part 3

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleGeneral public

Abstract

There are many historical reasons for the birth of empirical science in the literature. One important line of development has been the history of theology. Colin Gunton and Thomas Torrance have suggested that the Christian view of the world as the creation of God influenced Western thought in a way that made the birth of science more likely.
