Public lecture organised by ISCAST and the History and Philosophy of Science department as part of the Science Festival run by Melbourne University. It will be held in Theatre G20 of the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Building.

Description: It is often thought that clashes between religion and science are inevitable, and that widespread acceptance of a scientific worldview will necessarily lead to a decline in religious belief. This talk will challenge this common assumption, examining past and present relations between science and religion and considering how patterns of religious belief have changed in response to the growth of modern science.

Topic: Has Science made Religion Redundant?

Speaker: Prof. Peter Harrison FAHA
