Series of lectures on faith and science

A five-lecture course on faith and science by Colette Sciberras starts today. The course, running on Mondays until May 13, will begin with a tour of the conceptual and historical opposition between religious faith and science. It will focus in depth on the first principles of philosophy, and the way these were incorporated into modern science, divested of their traditional and religious implications. Human experience in space and time will be considered extensively, especially in relation to what we know from contemporary biology and physics.

Regarding faith, this will be considered in two different ways: as assent to the truth of a proposition, and as a virtue, in the Aristotelian, Buddhist and Christian senses. The course is intended to allow students to think more clearly about religious faith in relation to contemporary scientific understanding of the world, and to form their own conclusions about whether the two can be reconciled.

The course is being held at 181, Volunteer Centre, Melita Street, Valletta on Mondays at 6.30pm.
