Quakers and Science

Part of the Quaker Quicks seriesThis series of short paperbacks is very useful for outreach and for religious education.

Quakerism has a rich tradition of engaging science and has produced many notable amateur and eminent professional scientists in fields ranging from psychology to physics. Quakers and Science discusses some of the historical reasons why Quakers embraced science, introducing ten 20th-century Quaker scientists to explore the intriguing resonances between science and Quakerism. The distinctive Quaker emphasis on deeds not creeds inspires Quaker scientists to be particularly interested in the ethical questions raised by science. And the emphasis on continual revelation implies that Quakers have welcomed the opportunity to reformulate their religious beliefs in the face of new scientific discoveries.
