UNESCO Chair Fellow, Fr. Joseph Tham, recently edited a volume with the Hong Kong Journal of Catholic Studies on the topic of “Science and Faith.” This yearly journal is published under the Department of Religious Studies of the Chinese University of Hong Kong. This publication is dedicated to the thorny question of the relationship between science and faith. While science and religion were one-time partners, they are now perceived as competitors with frequent clashes at the ethical and ideological levels. Looking at the articles contained in this journal, readers will get a glimpse of the immensity and complexity of issues confronting science and faith. The contributions highlight the historical relationship between faith and science, the methodological questions regarding how these two disciplines interact, and whether faith can say something useful to science and vice versa. Fr. Joseph also contributed an article on “Does Science need Ethics?” in this volume.
