THE WORLD VIEW OF THE NATURAL SCIENCES

Robin M Crewe

Abstract


The title of this contribution suggests a synthesis of views that are common to natural scientists.  However, the views present here are a reflection of my own view of the subject and may be considered to represent a sceptical and non-theistic one which is by no means common within the disciplinary population of which I am a part.  It will be clear from the way in which I have structured this piece, that I have been heavily influenced by the analysis of the relationship between Science and Religion that has been developed by George Ellis of the University of Cape Town – in particular his two articles Modern Cosmology and the limits of Science (Ellis, 1995) and Thinking underlying the new ‘scientific’ world-views (Ellis, 1996).
