An important issue in the science-religion discussion is how to characterize the main possible ways of relating science and religion. Due to the influence of Ian Barbour’s important work in the science-religion field, the standard way of presenting the relationship between science and religion is in terms of four views or models (conflict, independence, dialogue and integration). In this paper I point out some problems with his typology and suggest instead an alternative three-dimensional typology.
