R. Shaul Yisraeli, the prominent Israeli halakhic decisor who passed away a little over a decade ago, quoted a long excerpt from R. Avraham ben Ha-Rambam about the Sages and science -- one of R. Nosson Slifkin's primary sources -- in his (R. Yisraeli's) Perakim Be-Mahasheves Yisrael, ch. 21 sec. 2.
Just another data point regarding whether the Jewish people have rejected R. Avraham ben Ha-Rambam's approach, as some have argued.
