The course looks at historical and contemporary issues in the relationship between religious belief in God and scientific explanations of the world we inhabit. The nature of the contemporary debate between science and religion will be analyzed, exploring different models for how these two ways of explaining the world relate to one other. Special consideration is given to mutually beneficial interaction between science and religion, including the ethical and ecological problems facing our world.
