Please note that this course has started and enrolment is no longer possible.

In this course we shall consider what role philosophy can play in mediating the conflict(s) between science and religion. Does God’s foreknowledge pose a greater threat to our freedom than either determinism or indeterminism? Are Creationism and evolution competing theories? And can parables be used scientifically?
