I have now finished reading James Hannam’s God’s Philosophers and written the first draft review. I think that I will let it simmer for a while. I remember writing a review of Stephen Carlson’s book on “Secret Mark” and inadvertantly expressing myself in a way that sounded much more negative than I intended. Let’s avoid that this time!
The book itself is actually a very good book. Judging from the amount of nonsense I see online about “science and religion”, it’s almost certainly a very necessary book. It’s aimed at the general reader with an interest in the history of science (which I can’t say I really have). I suspect the book ought to be shorter, tho.
