The Science & Religion at the End of the 20th Century

This course will be a discussion of some perspectives on the
relation of science and religion at the end of the 20th century. The
goal of the course is to frame questions about the issue, recognize
the arguments used, and understand the bases/assumptions used in
those arguments. Students should complete the course with an
experience of three major areas: 1) initial characterizations of
science and religion; 2) the philosophical issues and questions
underlying the religion/science discussion; and, 3) sample
approaches to the relationship of science and religion.
