Resumo

Como parte de meu curso de Comunicação Científica desenvolvido na Laurentian University (Sudbury, ON.), explorei como a ciência e a religião são abordados em sete livros infantis canadenses que abordam a vida de Cristovão Colombo e Galileu Galilei. Utilizando uma abordagem retórica, foram examinados os textos e as imagens desses livros a fim de compreender se possíveis conflitos entre ciência e religião são abordados e se esses conflitos aparecem de maneira balanceada, se pendem para um dos lados ou se aparecem de maneira não oposta. Utilizando o coeficiente de desequilíbrio (coefficient of imbalance) proposto por Janis e Fadner, foi possível quantificar os resultados e apontar que os livros analisados tendem a tratar a ciência e a religião de maneira equilibrada. Entretanto, quando analisadas as imagens nas sessões que apresentam conflitos conhecidos entre a igreja católica e Galileu ou Colombo, os livros se afastam de uma visão equilibrada da ciência e da religião e adotam uma posição de oposição, em alguns casos, e de não oposição, em outros.
