Science and Belief in the Nuclear Age ebook
by Peter E. Hodgson
Hodgson was actively involved in the study of the impact of science on society, and of the resulting moral obligations of scientists.
Peter E. Hodgson was born on 27 November 1928 in London. Hodgson did nuclear physics under Harrie Massey at University College London, studying the scattering of neutrons by alpha particles. This drew the attention of Rudolf Peierls and Denys Wilkinson, who invited him to Oxford on 1958. Hodgson was actively involved in the study of the impact of science on society, and of the resulting moral obligations of scientists.
In a lucid, compelling way, Science and Belief in the Nuclear Age describes our responsibility for this intellectual heritage that is so essential for Christian tradition. Hodgson, without claiming that science should become religion or religion science, convincingly describes an academic community of intellectual interchange that replaces former conflicts and partial perspectives by a new integral vision of science open to theological truth. Description written by Archbishop Joseph Zycinski, Grand Chancellor of the Catholic University of Lublin.

The new discoveries in physics during the 20th century have stimulated intense debate about their relevance to age-old theological questions. Views range from those holding that modern physics provides a surer road to God than traditional religions, to those who say that physics and theology are incommensurable and so do not relate. At the very least, physics has stimulated renewed theological discussions.

This book follows in the post-second world war tradition of excellence in nuclear physics textbooks. P. E. Hodgson is Head of the Nuclear Physics Theoretical Group at the Nuclear Physics Laboratory, University of Oxford. The theoretical development is thorough and detailed. It is likely that this book will become one of the standard texts and with occasional updating could remain so for many years.
