The doctrines of different traditions are not com- patible (within Hinduism itself, let alone others), so their respective accounts of their relationship with scientific truths — which seek a unity that does not permit incompatibilities — will not usually be compatible either. This might have an impact on how religious worldviews engage on the matter of scientific inquiry and truths: do they collaborate in terms of their agreement over how to be religious and scientific, or do they compete over which doctrinal commitment is compatible with scientific facts? In Jonathan Edelmann, we see a young scholar whose thinking about Hindu- ism, comparative religion, and science will certainly have a role to play in the devel- opment of this nascent area of study.

way. But it cannot be contentful. The doctrines of different traditions are not com- patible (within Hinduism itself, let alone others), so their respective accounts of their relationship with scientific truths — which seek a unity that does not permit incompatibilities — will not usually be compatible either.

In Jonathan Edelmann, we see a young scholar whose thinking about Hindu- ism, comparative religion, and science will certainly have a role to play in the devel- opment of this nascent area of study.
