ABSTRACT
The article discusses the views of Stanley L. Jaki, a professor at Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey, on religion and science. In his books "The Origin of Science and the Science of Its Origin" and "The Road of Science and the Ways of God," Jaki attempts to reconcile science and religion. His main thesis is that the rules, habit of scientific inquiry and attainments of Western science are the products of Western religious vision. He also compares the features of pagan societies and Western theism.
