Writing with characteristic bracing intelligence and clarity, Gould sheds new light on a dilemma that has plagued thinking people since the Renaissance. Instead of having to choose between science and religion, Gould asks, why not opt for the golden resolution that accords dignity and distinction to both? In elaborating and exploring his thought-provoking concept, Gould delves into the history of science with stories of figures as Galileo and Darwin, and concludes that science defines the natural world, and religion our moral world.

Classic book on Science and Religion written by the famous biologist. Gould is a fantastic writer as well as a scientist and clearly argues his points in a way that is accessible to all readers. This book is referred to the most by anyone, atheist or atheist, when the subject of the conflict between science and religion comes up.
