Book Discussion: The Territories of Science and Religion
Tuesday, January 25, 2022 at 3:00pm to 4:30pm
Are science and religion inherently opposed? Have they always been? Not necessarily, argues distinguished scholar Peter Harrison in The Territories of Science and Religion. He demonstrates that the concepts of science and religion, as we understand them, are relatively recent, and that the boundaries between them have historically been dynamic and even permeable. Come join fellow members of the MIT community to read and discuss Harrison’s book and examine how very different approaches to reality have related to and mutually enriched each other, and how they may do so again.
