Abstract: This article tries to describe the main idea of
Barbour‟s work on Issues in Science and Religion related to scientific
methods. According to Barbour, three criteria are used to evaluate a
theory: it should match with observations, the internal relationship
between the theories and concepts, and its comprehension. Barbour
outlines some views in relation to the theory of science tradition. There
are four views, all of which have differences to apply the theory in the
study of science, namely positivism, instrumentalism, Idealism, and
Realism. Models of scientific discovery do not only give blessing for
human life, but also a challenge for religious philosophical outlook.
Scientific thoughts will be also able to open the forms of truth that lies
in the sphere of personal life and human relationships
