Science and Faith: Contemporary Challenges
. October 29 to 31, 2016

About the course

In different contexts, science and faith have been presented as entities in conflict. Because of that, opportunities for dialogue and integration have been lost, causing damage and frustration to people linked to both areas. Even more, this image of conflict can also generate a limited and biased view of the universe in which we live.

Thanks to the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion , we offer to the Chilean community this course in which we will discuss different topics related to the integration of Science and Christian Faith.

The course is aimed at students in higher education, professionals in science, pastors and theology students, in addition to the general public. In short, all who are interested in learning about concrete examples of integration between science and faith, from theological, scientific, philosophical and historical reflections.

Important Information

We will have translation to english during Spanish lectures.

The course will take place in Santiago, at Schöenstatt sanctuary in La Florida (near Vicente Valdes metro station, at the end of the green line 5). See the map here.
