Book Cover of Religion and Science from Galileo to Bergson

Religion and Science from Galileo to Bergson

by John Charlton Hardwick

"The chapters which follow are not intended as even a slight sketch of the history of Thought since the Renaissance. Their object is more modest, i.e. to illustrate the thesis that mankind, being 'incurably religious,' insists (however hopeless the enterprise may sometimes seem) upon interpreting the universe spiritually."
