Science as Salvation 1989–1990

Mary Midgley

Summary

Table of Contents

Abstract

Science as Salvation looks at the development of beliefs regarding the nature of our world, our future, our origins and our outlook on life through the changing views about natural sciences, specifically physics. As our understanding of the nature of physical matter has changed, combined with a hypothesized need for faith and a worldview dependent on faith, human understanding of life and humanity has also changed. The lecture series looks specifically at the historical claims and viewpoints that have contributed to the anthropic principle and what this means for everyday views on life and meaning.
