Review of James W. Jones' the Texture of knowledge: an essay in science and religion
This is a finely and tightly woven essay about the unweaving of hard and fast claims in both science and religion. James W. Jones advocates what he calls an open texture in both fields. He analyzes three leading philosophers of science: Michael Polanyi, Stephen Toulmin, and Thomas Kuhn. He advocates a "critical relativism." This is a thoughtful essay.
