Document: Herman Dooyeweerd, “The Secularization of Science”, In La revue reformee, trans. by Robert D. Knudsen (1954), 138-155.

Excerpt: When reference is made to secularization, the secularization of science is often forgotten. That is the case because the greater number of Christians who have enjoyed a scientific education lack a clear idea of the connection between scientific thought and religion. The claim is repeatedly made that by its very nature non-theological science must be altogether free of personal belief, because its objectivity would be imperiled the moment it was bound to any presuppositions originating in faith. This idea has been accepted without weighing its consequences and without asking whether it is justified from either a biblical or a critical, scientific point of view.
