Science, Magic and Religion

California University (US)

science and religion as historical phenomena that have evolved over time, Examines the earlier mind-set before 1700 when into science fitted elements that came eventually to be seen as magical, how Western cosmologies became "disenchanted", Magical tradition transformed into modern mysticisms, political implications, discussion concerning science in totalitarian settings as well as "big science" during Cold War
