ABSTRACT
The purpose of this paper is to discuss four basic approaches to the relation between Koran and science, namely reductionist, conflictory, separationist, and conformist. It argues that the first three approaches lead us to some religious, philosophical and epistemological problems with respect to the relation above. However, the so-called conformist approach seems to be more plausible and acceptable provided that certain criteria and data are taken as basis. At this point, it will tackle with some problems as follows: What is the basic paradigm upon which the relation between Koran and science is possible and legitimate? To what extend is this relation compatible with the essence of religion and science? It will discuss the problem whether claiming that some Koranic verses or notions refer to some scientific facts is legitimate and reasonable. Moreover, it will indicate some unacceptable understandings and interpretations in this context.
