Translation of the text in the back cover of the book:

...which is your reasonable worship.
Do not conform yourselves to this age
but be transformed by the renewal of your mind,
that you may discern what is the will of God,
what is good and pleasing and perfect.

-- Saint Paul to the Romans, 12, 1-2

Idols of wood and stone, of gold and silver, mentioned in the Bible are no longer present in Western society. Other idols took their place. In the words of T.S. Eliot: Usury, Lust and Power. But the only idol that aims at taking the place of God is science, from which salvation is expected, and that is improperly used to build the foundations of a materialist philosophy.

Stanley Jaki is a historian of science whose research has largely shown that there would be no science without the Catholic Church, and that Galileo and Newton's science has medieval roots. For this reason, the Catholic Church and science cannot be in conflict. Father Jaki also examined what are the limits of science, limits that do not allow science to go beyond what is measurable, to cover the ground of philosophy and religion. In the wake of Gilson, Father Jaki supports methodical realism as a starting point for both philosophy and science.
