dc.description.abstract Grounding itself in Thomism, this paper seeks to explore the status quaestionis of the science and faith dialogue. It argues that faith and reason are both routes to knowledge through theological and scientific inquiry respectively. From this point of departure, it is proposed that faith and reason are partly related in the physical and natural sciences’ limits when at these places metaphysical questions are posed. This is illustrated through cosmology, evolutionary theory, and quantum mechanics. Throughout, the author explores how the engagement of science and faith leads from reason beyond reason alone, and, within this epistemological whole, it is noted that faith complements reason in providing humanity with a fuller picture of reality. en
