17C SCIENCE & RELIGION

 

FALL 2017 RELS011301 SCIENCE & RELIGION
PROFESSOR DONOVAN SCHAEFER
TUESDAYS & THURSDAYS 12-1:30 PM

Science and religion are often assumed to be two areas with no zone of overlap.  Or they are seen as rivals, destined to make sparks whenever they come into contact.  This course explores the interactions of science and religion.  It will consider perspectives from science and technology studies on how the nature of “science” has changed over time, the history of science in its dynamic interactions with religion, and contemporary cognitive and evolutionary perspectives on the origins of religion.
