Mikael Stenmark examines four models of rationality and argues for a discussion of rationality that takes into account the function and aim of such human practices as science and religion.
“Rationality in Science, Religion, and Everyday Life is a clear, informed, and stimulating discussion that will be of interest to a wide range of philosophers, theologians, and others concerned with the rational status of religious belief. It provides a useful overview and sugggest some fruitful new approaches.” — Gary Gutting, author of Religious Belief and Religious Skepticism
“This is a book which has succeeded admirably in presenting a philosophical topic in a way that is interesting and mind-stretching for the non-philosopher.” — Scottish Bulletin of Evangelical Theology
“In an impressive and creative survey of relevant contemporary literature, Stenmark advances our understanding of many complex topics.” — Cross Currents
“Stenmark has written an exceptional introduction to the major issues in critical thinking in regard to science, religion, and cognitive science.” — The Reader’s Review
“Students and scholars of philosophy and philosophy of religion will appreciate this study for the provocative and original contribution it makes to the rationality debate in contemporary philosophy and theology.” — Bookwatch
