Life in this world produces an ever-increasing range of challenges, whether Covid-19, the climate emergency , medical ethics or finding meaning and purpose. Science and Faith both give us ways to understand and respond to these challenges, especially when they work together.
The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion Summer Course 2021 will feature 13 leading academics in 10 fields of study including; Behaviour and Ecology, Climate Science, Genetics, History of Science, Mathematics, Neuroscience, Oceanography, Philosophy and Theology of Science, Physics and Space Exploration.
Join us online to explore this subject in some depth in the company of a group of top academics and hear them speak about their science and how it impacts their faith.
Each day will have a different theme:
Science and Faith in History and Society
Science and Faith in Origins and Evolution
Science and Faith in Shaping the Universe
Science and Faith: All in the Mind?
Science and Faith in Caring for the Environment
