Abstract

American Journal of Theology and Philosophy with the specimen "god" under "detached" and "objective" conditions. Peden communicates the sense of Wieman's meaning of the "scientific method" in the use of religious inquiry. early in his life, Wieman wrote: "All knowledge must depend ultimately upon science, for science is nothing else than the refined process of knowing. scientific method is simply the method of knowing."1 Peden further makes clear that the scientific method is the method of knowledge; yet it has to be "knowledge" of something. And this something, in the case of the god concept, is to be found, experienced, and known in the dimensions of life. moreover, it has to make a difference in the dimensions of life, human and beyond. Peden's critical analysis of this knowledge of this something is an explication of Wieman's career emphasis of "the two sides of life" and "awareness and scientific discovery." And this dimension of Wieman's thought is what they who have accused Wieman of turning from "the more important cosmological concerns of existence" to a worldly concern for human interchange have completely missed about the significance of Wieman's career.
