Summary: The author gives a recapitulatory resume in the form of resolutions of the four lectures and the subsequent discussion during the Stoker lectures on 26 March 1982. The inter-dependence of Philosophy, subject philosophy and specific disciplines has the result that * none of these may over-estimate itself and consequently under-estimate the others; * a watertight division is impossible seeing that scientists from all these fields within the context of science are often involved with issues which overlap the fields of the others; * the religious bias and the specificity of all science have to come to expression in spite of the distinction between Philosophy, subject philosophy and specific disciplines; and * subject philosophy constitutes the bridge which makes possible twoway traffic between Philosophy and subject disciplines.
