Sobre l'autor

Born in Gyor, Hungary, Stanley Jaki was ordained a Benedictine priest in the Catholic Church in 1948 and earned his doctorate in theology at the Pontifical Institute of San Anselmo in Rome in 1950. Seven years later he earned a second doctorate in physics from Fordham University in New York. In the mostra'n més years since, the primary focus of his historical, philosophical, and theological research and writing has been the relationship between theology and modern science. Exiled from his native country, Jaki has been visiting fellow at Princeton University, the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, and the Center for Theological Inquiry in Princeton. He gave the Gifford Lectures at the University of Edinburgh, 1974--76, and was awarded the Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion in 1987.
