The physical sciences have contributed to philosophical debates regarding the apparent conflict between religious and scientific outlooks. In particular, religion and science seem to suggest different accounts of human nature, the universe, and our place in it. This course is concerned with issues such as: the basis for religious and scientific claims, nature and intelligent design, causality and free-will, and the emergence of mind.
This course will require you to be online for live lectures at the scheduled time. There will also be some pre-recorded lectures. Class recordings will be available until the end of the exam period. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
