and uncertainty along medieval, patristic, classical and Biblical assets, religion and knowledge in technological know-how demanding situations a lot of the present 'science and faith' debate as working with the incorrect assumptions and within the fallacious house. Its narrative method develops a average critique of the cultural
separation of sciences and arts, suggesting an method of technological know-how, or in its extra old shape common philosophy - the 'love of knowledge of common issues' - which may draw on theological and cultural roots.
