RS 336 - Religion and Science


An exploration of the interaction of science with religion, both historically and in contemporary debate. The focus is on the relation of science to Christian thought, but other traditons (e.g. Islam and Buddhism) will also be studied where relevant. Topics will normally include: the nature of science and of religion; historical issues in science and religion (e.g the Galileo case); theism and cosmology; natural theology; evolution and human nature; mind, body and soul; the science of morality and altruism; naturalism and belief/unbelief.
