She surveyed nearly 1,700 scientists and interviewed 275 of them. She centered the book on portraits of 10 representative individuals who work in the natural and social sciences at top American research universities. She found that few scientists are purely secular. And many — nearly half — are religious. Other scientists are what she calls “spiritual entrepreneurs” who are looking for new ways to hold science and faith together.Who: Elaine Howard Ecklund, Rice University sociologist and author of “Science vs. Religion.”What: In-studio and pre-event media interviews. When: In-studio interviews Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 30 and 31; pre-event interviews upon request.For more information or to schedule an interview with Ecklund, contact David Ruth, director of national media relations at Rice, at 713-348-6327 or [email protected]last_img read more
