The Killeen Chair of Theology & Philosophy Lecture Series

Science and Religion: Rejecting a False Dichotomy
It is commonplace in our culture—perhaps especially in our political culture—to regard the scientific and religious worldviews as mutually exclusive. But is it really true that we must “choose sides”? The Catholic intellectual tradition rejects this dichotomy: the motto fides et ratio—faith and reason—warns us against pitting the one against the other. The 2014-2015 Killeen Chair series invites you to join leading philosophers, theologians, and scientists as they work not to undermine but to enhance each other in the quest for a spiritually fulfilling and scientifically unified experience of the world.

All events are free and open to the public.
