Paper prepared for the Templeton series on Science, Religion and Human Experience, Santa Barbara, California.

Proctor (editor) Science Religion and the Human Experience, Oxford University Press, pp.27-48, 2005


Like other articles (43), (79), this article pursues the comparison between the religious and the scientific regimes of enunciations ; it tries in particular to explore the conditions of felicity of religious talks by distinguishing it from information ‘double click’ and shows that the link between belief and religion is a category mistake ; drawing on some of the iconograpy assembled for Iconoclash, it shows how scientific and religious images differ in the path they establish between successive images.
