Science and faith: new perspectives
Keywordsscience and religion, self-organization, finality, anthropocentrism
Current knowledge on the dynamism and self-organization of nature allow a more solid foundation to establish cooperation between the fields of science and religion, as contemporary times demand. The structural and dynamic patterns found in natural processes can be considered as the storage and deployment of information guiding them. Philosophical reflection from these realities suggests the legitimate rethinking of intrinsic finality and of a renewed anthropocentrism that sees creativity as one of the main manifestations of human uniqueness.
