Abstract and Keywords

This article presents a meta-analysis, an exercise in philosophical reflection on religion-and-science. It engages in thinking about religion-and-science thinking, and to refers readers who are familiar with proposals concerning humans as created co-creators. The article elaborates the view that religion-and-science is more than either religion alone, as it is commonly understood, or science alone, as it is commonly practised. In this respect, religion-and-science is a tertium quid. For some, that meaning is a discovery or a revelation that is grounded in transcendence, while for others it is a human construction of meaning. Religion-and-science privileges science, in that it believes that the world presents itself to us in terms of embodied scientific understandings. At the same time, religion-and-science is itself religious in nature, in that it is always oriented toward what people deem most important.

Keywords: transcendence, philosophical reflection, meaning construction, religion-and-science, co-creators
