She highlights themes from the Gifford Lectures and summarizes assessments of the Lectures by Jones ((1970) and Jaki (1986). She examines James’s natural theology in The Varieties of Religious Experience (1902), and summarizes the essential elements of his psychology of religion. There are no classics in the natural sciences akin to those in the humanities; Koyré paved the way to getting some connoisseurs to read some old science texts the way they read old classics in the humanities. Historians of science can help that project by debunking the myth that to be a good historian of science one has to be professional.

We think we know the meaning of "environment" and its relation to ourselves, our faith and our history. This collection of essays, by eminent theologians, historians, and scientists re-examines the world we live in and assesses the impact of our physical, spiritual and social environment on modern thought. Each chapter is linked by quotations from the first Glasgow Gifford Lecturer, Max Muller, and the whole is edited and introduced by Neil Spurway. The volume includes contributions from the physicist-cosmologist, John Barrow; the evolutionary biologist, Richard Dawkins; the historian, John Roberts; the philosopher, Anthony Kenny; and the theologians, Don Cupitt and Archbishop John Habgood. "Humanity, Environment and God" surveys one of the most critical philosophical issues of our age: what are the conditions in which humankind finds itself and what should our responses to those conditions be. Its perspectives from science, history, religion and philosophy provide an examination of those issues.
