After treating Faith & Reason in the first weeks and then Revelation last week, we now turn towards the relationship between faith and science. As in the past weeks, this will continue to be more of a foundational topic, albeit more concrete than the previous weeks.
We will continue a foundational approach as it should be fairly obvious that any discussion on faith and science could lead to a discussion on a wide variety of concrete issues. Certainly we will discuss some of those applications in class on Thursday, though the aim will be more philosophical.
For this week, instead of a collection of excerpts, I have selected a single letter composed by St. John Paul II in 1988 to the then director of the Vatican Observatory.
