Sažetak
Summary

On the basis of the “Theory of Natural Philosophy” (precisely, its Appendix) by Ruđer Bošković, the author of the article questions whether it is possible to justify the theses claiming that science and religion are not two mutually opposed fields. We shall try to prove it on the basis of a variant of the argument from design, which is found in the Appendix. Beside the argument form design, the Appendix offers variants of the cosmological argument, and the argument of the first non-caused cause, the argument that the actual infinity is not possible, as well as the argument of contingency, which this article will not consider. The argument from design, especially in its modern version of the fine tuning argument, whose denotations we also find in Bošković, has motivated many discussion among philosophers of religion and philosophers of science, who from their own perspectives tried to evaluate the strengths of these arguments. Basically, we can affirm that science and religion can support each other, at least in some arguments, like in the aforementioned ones by Bošković.
