ISLAM AND SCIENCE – CONCORDANCE OR CONFLICT?

This speech was delivered by Professor Abdus Salam, Nobel Laureate in Physics (1979), in Paris at the UNESCO House on April 27, 1984 at the invitation of the Organization ‘Islam and the West’. The Secretary General of the Organization of the Islamic Conference, Dr. Habib Chatti, inaugurated the meeting. The format of the meeting was to invite two representatives of Islam and two Western representatives to speak comparatively. Thus, on the Muslim side were Professor Salam and Dr. Hussein AlJazaeri, former Minister of Health of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and presently
