Es decir, que la ciencia defina el mundo natural y la religión, y que ambas puedan cohabitar respetuosamente.Para sustentar su propuesta, el autor se sumerge en la historia de la ciencia y asedia las figuras de científicos y líderes morales que, a lo largo de los tiempos tuvieron que enfrentarse a dilemas de fe y razón.

Galileo o Darwin ejemplifican el argumento del autor de que los individuos y las culturas deben cultivar tanto la vida espiritual como una constante interrogación racional para experimentar plenamente las potencialidades de la condición humana--------------------------Revered and eminently readable essayist Stephen Jay Gould has once again rendered the complex simple, this time mending the seeming split between the two Rocks of Ages, science and religion.

He quickly, and rightfully, admits that his thesis is not new, but one broadly accepted by many scientists and theologians. Gould begins by suggesting that Darwin has been misconstrued--that while some religious thinkers have used divinity to prove the impossibility of evolution, Darwin would have never done the reverse. Gould eloquently lays out not a merely diplomatic solution to rectify the physical and metaphysical, but a principled position on moral and intellectual grounds, central to which is the elegant concept of non-overlapping magisteria.

(Gould defines magisteria as a four-bit word meaning domain of authority in teaching.) Essentially, science and religion cant be unified, but neither should they be in conflict- each has its own discrete magisterium, the natural world belonging exclusively to science and the moral to religion.Goulds argument is both lucid and convincing as he cites past religious and scientific greats (including a particularly touching section on Darwin himself).

Regardless of your persuasions, religious or scientific, Gould holds up his end of the conversation with characteristic respect and intelligence. --Paul Hughes
