Lecture: Examining the Sacred by Stuart Kauffman
Start Date: 2/4/2010Start Time: 4:30 PM
End Date: 2/4/2010

Event Description
This lecture will examine new and old philosophies of science and how they relate science to society and religion.

Drawing upon scientific examples of complexity and emergence, Stuart Kauffman has argued in his recent book Reinventing the Sacred, for a new understanding of what we consider sacred.

Kauffman’s reimaging of science and religion may unsettle members of those communities, but it is sure to provoke challenging and productive conversations.

Stuart Kauffman is a MacArthur Fellow and prominent member of the Santa Fe Institute.

A panel discussion concerning emergence theory will take place on Feb. 5 at 5:00 p.m. in Cunniff Hall.

Cooper Series events are free and open to the public; there is no reserved seating. Event details may be subject to change without notice.
