The recent arrival of a copy of The Oxford Handbook of the Science of Science Communication spurred me to look further into the Oxford Handbook series as a whole. What I found was indeed quite a remarkable selection of high-level but still remarkably readable collections of scholarly articles on a wide range of subjects.

For those interested in the sciences, three volumes were particularly noteworthy: The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Biology and, for those (like me) interested in mixing a bit of the humanities with their science, The Oxford Handbook of Religion and Science and The Oxford Handbook of Religion and Ecology.

There are far more, and I encourage all interested to explore the series’ section on the Oxford University Press website.
