Philosophy, Science and Religion mark three of the most fundamental modes of thinking about the world and our place in it. Are these modes incompatible? Put another way: is the intellectually responsible thing to do to ‘pick sides’ and identify with one of these approaches at the exclusion of others? Or, are they complementary or mutually supportive? As is typical of questions of such magnitude, the devil is in the details. For example, it is important to work out what is really distinctive about each of these ways of inquiring about the world. In order to gain some clarity here, we’ll be investigating what some of the current leading thinkers in philosophy, science and religion are actually doing.

TOP REVIEWS FROM PHILOSOPHY, SCIENCE AND RELIGION: PHILOSOPHY AND RELIGION
Crate course, aimed at a relatively basic level but a very good overview of the topic and very enjoyable. Recommend a course to anyone relatively new to philosophy. Thank you.
An engaging and thought-provoking course. Week 5 (Scientism) was of especial interest to me and was very well presented.
Islam is the second biggest religion in the world and is one of the Ibrahimic religions. There should be some more research done on it.
Very informative and intellectually challenging, but definitely learned a lot. All the best to the course organizers.
