Summary : Francois Euve, Etienne Klein, Salvator, May 2022. According to François Euvé, we must first ask ourselves which God we are talking about. More broadly, we must question the principles on which modern science is based and its philosophical and theological assumptions. Without giving in to the temptation of concordism, faith and science can dialogue and give us access to a truth that neither scientific materialism nor fideist irrationality defends. If science can purify religion of superstition, conversely, religion can help purify science of false absolutes. Find it in bookstores.
