Science and religion

This autumn the cycle Visions of Science offers a contemporary take on the relationship between Science and Religion

The historical disputes between science and religion are famous: the Galileo case, the reactions to Darwin's theory of evolution etc. This cycle offers a contemporary take, in the light of the advances in knowledge, on the relations between the two paths towards approaching the mystery of the world.
