Since the dawn of scientific enquiry, the worlds of science and philosophy have been closely interlinked. From Plato and Archimedes in antiquity, to the Renaissance and Enlightenment eras, thinkers have combined science and theology within their studies explaining how and why things occurred. For those that believe that the infinite complexities and uncertainties of nature cannot be completely understood through a solely scientific approach, Caesar's Church provides an insight into the ever changing boundaries between science and philosophy. No expert knowledge of either science or philosophy is needed as this book is aimed at both the general reader and those with a more academic outlook.
