The Great Rift

Lit­er­acy, Numer­acy, and the Re­li­gion-Science Di­vide

The New York Review of Books - - Contents - Michael E. Ho­bart

“Ho­bart of­fers a new twist on a huge old meta­nar­ra­tive: the death of God. Some­thing or other hap­pened in Re­nais­sance Europe, the story goes, and it even­tu­ally dis­tanced sci­en­tists from re­li­gion. Ho­bart lo­cates this great shift in the field of math­e­mat­ics...Con­tains a huge wealth of his­tor­i­cal anec­dote, and Ho­bart mar­shals it con­fi­dently.” —Josephine Liv­ing­stone, New Repub­lic $39.95
