dc.description In his library at Trinity College, Cambridge University, around the year I860, William Whewell (1794-1866) engages in conversation with a company of thinkers on the province of metaphysics and physics, to form a comprehensive scientific belief. In attendance with him are Lord Francis Bacon (1561-1626), Sir Robert Boyle (1627-1691 ), Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727) , John Henry Cardinal Newman (1801-1890), Professor Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947), and Pope John Paul II (b. 1920). Whewell proposes a wager: Is there a possible remedy to be found for the schism between the metaphysical and the physical elements of science?
