Science, religion, philosophie : une confrontation salutaire

Abstract : Faced with the relativism which seems to prevail in contemporary epistemology, the effort to distinguish the scientific approach of reality from religious or philosophical approaches may appear quite reckless and archaic. Nevertheless it seems to be an urgent task if we do not want to drift towards the trite and standardising : “everything is equal ; all is good !” Such assertions put all models of knowledge on the same level of uncertainty in a strange confusion of concepts. How shall we distinguish scientific methods from religions or philosophical ways of thinking ? Can we today understand the originality of each ? The problem is how to give some meaning to human knowledge in its varied forms and to understand the range, and also the limit, of scientific reasoning.
