Topic: Religious Origins of Modern Science
Speaker: Prof. Peter Harrison FAHA
Cost: $20 Full, $15 ISCAST Members, Ridley students & Concession
It is sometimes thought that modern science developed largely independently of, or even in opposition to, religion. Historians of science, however, have proposed various ways in which religion might have played a significant role in the emergence of modern science. This lecture will evaluate some of the standard arguments for the religious origins of science, and put forward some new ideas about the influence of religion on the development and persistence of science.
