Science and Religion: Towards a New Cartography

David N. Livingstone

Several historiographical models have been advanced to describe the historical connections between science and religion. David N. Livingstone argues that these proposals operate with the unexamined assumption that scientific and religious discourses occupy different domains that can be tidily delineated. A more fruitful historical strategy, it is suggested, may be derived from the recent "spatial turn" in science studies which would situate encounters between particular scientific claims and particular religious communities in specific local circumstances. Mr. Livingstone is Professor of Geography in the School of Geosciences at the Queen s University of Belfast, Northern Ireland.
