The Science and Religion from The University of Edinburgh is one of the world’s very few science and religion programs.Much of the recent debate surrounding ‘new atheism’ has taken place within a poorly informed view of the history and philosophy of science and its relationship with religion. This program aims to inform and engage with the debate in depth, looking at it from scientific, philosophical, historical, ethical and theological perspectives.
Compulsory courses comprise History of Science and Religion in the Christian Tradition; Cosmos, Cell and Creator: Current Debates in Science and Religion; and two courses in research methods.
You will choose three options, which can be taken from courses in science and religion, such as:
- Economy, Ecology, and Ethics
- Key Thinkers in Science and Religion
- Philosophy of Time
- Philosophy of Science: Contemporary Debates
- Science and Religion in Literature
- Science and Scripture
