Quantum Cosmology and the Laws of Nature

This collection of seventeen research papers is the result of the first of five international research conferences co-sponsored by the Vatican Observatory in Rome and the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences. The papers explore the implications of quantum cosmology and the status of the laws of nature for theological and philosophical issues regarding God’s action in the world. After an introduction to the Big Bang, inflation and quantum cosmology, these essays respond to a series of questions including: What methodological issues are raised by the interaction between science and theology? What is the status of the laws of nature and how does this relate to divine action?
