Description:      Product Description
In writing this book one of this generation's finest philosophers looks back at his own scholarship and the intellectual framework that produced it -- not least his staunch belief in the crucial role of religious convictions in academic thought.

Stanley Jaki's explosive productivity -- his work runs to more than forty books and hundreds of articles -- canvasses a wide range of relevant topics, most notably the history of science. In this intellectual autobiography Jaki reflects on the course of his thinking, and he asks in what sense the religious factors he holds dear can also promote scholarship, particularly in the sensitive field of science and religion. The answer is set forth in a combination of topical and chronological meditations of value to anyone pursuing academic work today. The book concludes with a complete list of Jaki's publications.
