Ian Barbour – In Remembrance

Ian Barbour, a leader in the efforts to build dialogue between science and religion, died on December 24, 2013, at the age of 90.   According to the TF Newsletter, he was “one of the founding figures in the academic discipline that studies the relationship between science and religion.”   He was committed to the idea that “science and religion might converse at the level of the assumptions they share, and both might hold that the universe is rational and intelligible, awesome and wonderful. Such reflection might lead to … integration. Here, the expectation is that scientific and theological inquiry will profoundly inform one another.”

May we be fortunate enough to see his vision fulfilled in the not-too-distant future!
