FORTY YEARS LATER: WHAT HAVE WE ACCOMPLISHED?
I examine the responses to John Caiazza's “Athens, Jerusalem, and the Arrival of Techno-Secularism” as part of Zygon's forty-year anniversary symposium. The responses reveal that issues of modernism and postmodernism are central to understanding the dynamic of the current science-religion/theology dialogue and that the resistance of many of the participants to the influences of postmodernism is a sign not of its backwardness but rather of some of the weaknesses inherent in the postmodern project. This does not mean that the many insights of postmodernism should be rejected. Rather, the science-religion/theology dialogue may be in an intellectually opportune place to construct successors to the worn label of postmodernism.
