Join us for a series of in-person talks during the Spring term 2023
This course tells the story of key figures in the history of science from Aristotle to Stephen Hawking.
It explores how their work has been influenced by or has influenced religious thinking. We shall explore why the ‘conflict thesis’ became popular in the 20th century and what lessons are to be learned for us today.
