I am indebted to David Ray Griffin for the terminology of maximal
naturalism and minimal naturalism
and the way in which this distinction proves helpful in discussions of this
sort. See his book, Religion and Scientific
Naturalism: Overcoming the Conflicts (Albany:
SUNY Press, 2000), for further development of this terminology and its
application to the relationship of science and religion.
