Five VT faculty, from a range of disciplines and spiritual backgrounds, will discuss their work, their worldviews, and how they come together. The panelists are
- Kirby Deater–Deckard (Psychology)
- Charles Taylor (Political Science)
- Holly Jordan (Political Science)
- Chetan Dave (Economics)
- Matthew Goodrum (Science and Technology in Society)
If you’ve ever wondered what religious and spiritual traditions on one hand, and the social sciences on the other, have to say about each other—how do the sciences inform religious practice? how does a spiritual outlook inform research? are they mutually reinforcing? are they in tension?—then come forth and participate in the exchange! We’ll have plenty of time for questions from attendees.
This event was inspired by the Viewpoints on Science and Religion Panel.
