Chaos and Complexity
Scientific Perspectives On Divine Action
Paperback | 9780268008123 | December 1996
This collection of fifteen research papers explores the implications of chaos and complexity in physical, chemical, and biological systems for philosophical and theological issues regarding God's action in the world. It resulted from the second of five international research conferences being co-sponsored by the Vatican Observatory, Rome, and the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences, Berkeley. The overarching goal is to contribute to constructive theology as it engages current research in the natural sciences and to investigate the philosophical and theological elements in ongoing theoretical research in the natural sciences.
Robert John Russell is founder and Director of the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences. He is also the Ian G. Barbour Professor of Theology and Science in Residence at the Graduate Theological Union.
Nancey Murphy is professor of Christian philosophy at Fuller Theological Seminary and co-editor of Neuroscience and the Person, also published by the University of Notre Dame Press.
