Major - Science vs. Religion?

RLCT 3046  Science vs. Religion?


Any 18 credits completed.


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




Are religion and science in fundamental conflict? Do the discoveries of modern science make religious views of the world obsolete? Or is there the possibility of dialogue and reconciliation? Students explore such questions by examining the complex relation of religion and science in historical and contemporary contexts. Focusing on western religion, topics may include the historical impacts of Galileo, Newton, and Darwin as well as contemporary approaches, which range from atheistic interpretations to creationism to theistic evolution.
