Abstract.

The challenge to the journal Zygon as suggested here is to respond to three different reference groups: public intellectuals, academia, and religious communities. An extended discussion follows of what I term the situation of irony in which religion-and-science finds itself. I argue that this situation of irony actually constitutes the domain in which our greatest contributions can be offered.

Keywords: Gotthold Lessing; Immanuel Kant; Karl Peters; Solomon Katz; academic discipline; incommensurate; irony; public intellectual; religious community; yoking
