Philosophy, Science and Religion mark three of the most fundamental modes of thinking about the world and our place in it. Are these modes incompatible? Put another way: is the intellectually responsible thing to do to ‘pick sides’ and identify with one of these approaches at the exclusion of others? Or, are they complementary or mutually supportive? As is typical of questions of such magnitude, the devil is in the details. For example, it is important to work out what is really distinctive about each of these ways of inquiring about the world. In order to gain some clarity here, we’ll be investigating what some of the current leading thinkers in philosophy, science and religion are actually doing.

TOP REVIEWS FROM PHILOSOPHY, SCIENCE AND RELIGION: SCIENCE AND PHILOSOPHY
The content of this course was of much interest to me, and it was presented in a manner that maintained my interest. I found the format of the course to be extrememly helpful.
A great course ! I have learned a lot about free will, evolution and New Earth Creationism among the other things!
Very interesting course. I certainly learnt a lot about science and philosophy, especially relating it to religion, and the history behind each domain.
Well, how can i put it: it is a strong way -but a wise one -to pin the noisy barking of religious fanaticism down without causing them to lose their human pride.
