Science and Non-Belief

by Taner Edis
Amherst NY: Prometheus Books, 2007. 283 pages.

A comprehensive look at the interaction between science and religion from the standpoint of nonbelief, discussing philosophy, physics, biology, neuroscience, pseudoscience, religion as a social phenomenon, and morality and politics. "Overall, this is an excellent book for the layman and professional alike. Anyone interested in the subject would find this to be one of the few contemporary books that approaches these controversial issues with more light than heat," wrote the reviewer for Catholic Book World. Taner Edis is Associate Professor of Physics at Truman State University, author of The Ghost in the Universe and An Illusion of Harmony, and RNCSE's associate editor for physics and astronomy.
