Periodicals; Mormons; Religious thought; Philosophy and religion
Independent national quarterly established to express Mormon culture and examine the relevance of religion to secular life. It is edited by Mormons who wish to bring their faith into dialogue with human experience as a whole and to foster artistic and scholarly achievement based on their cultural heritage. The journal encourages a variety of viewpoints; although every effort is made to insure accurate scholarship and responsible judgment, the views expressed are those of the individual authors and are not necessarily those of the Mormon Church or of the editors.

SCI€NC€ AND RELIGION INTRODUCTION BY JAMES L. FARMER When this special issue of Dialogue was first conceived, it became evident that the phrase "science and religion" has quite different meanings for different people. It was clear that the issue could not be comprehensive enough to please everyone, and therefore, decisions had to be made about what kinds of manuscripts to solicit. Generally, we decided to omit topics which had been covered extensively in either Mormon or non-Mormon literature, such as: technical discussions about ecology, population, evolution, or the age of the earth; reconciliation of the scriptures with science through allegorical interpretation or through imputation of certain technological innovations to God; and the use of science-based analogies to explain religious concepts. Topics which are peripherally related to science and religion, such as ethics, were also omitted. Manuscripts were solicited and selected with the hope that they would both raise new issues in the discussion of science and religion among Mormons and stimulate responses. This issue will not be a success unless there are responses to it in the form of articles replying to those contained herein or developing topics which are not included here. Richard F. Haglund Jr.'s article on science and religion is an excellent treatment
