PHIL 106 - Science, Religion and Reality


The seminar will address some basic issues in the philosphy of science and the philosophy of religion: What is science? What is reality?

Does science provide better explanations than theology or literature? How do religious arguments for the existence of God differ from scientific arguments for the existence of dark matter?
