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: RELIGION AND SCIENCE
Fun and explorative. I like the questions the best, fyi, and resonding to other people's writing.
I enjoyed learning about different religions and the different sciene therorys.
A good course that offers some helpful insights that are not immediately obvious to lay people.
Interesting subject, generally well-presented. Some presenters better than others and a bit too much of simple talking heads.
