'To the best of my knowledge, Paul Allen has provided the first book-length study of McMullin's 'critical realism', which offers a philosophically rigorous account of the interaction of the 'knower' and the 'known' within the process of knowing... Allen's account of McMullin's version of critical realism will be welcomed by all working at the interface of science and religion. It has the potential to bring additional rigour to an important discussion. It should find its way into college libraries with interests in the field.' Theological Book Review ’There is much that is interesting and stimulating in this book and it is very good to see Ernan McMullin clearly portrayed as the major figure he has been.’ Journal of Theological Studies ’... this fresh perspective on human knowledge opens new possibilities for science-theology dialogue, worthy of exploration, and Paul Allen's book is a valuable example of such investigation.’ ESSSAT News
