God, Humanity and the Cosmos: An Introduction to the Debate between Science and Religion (THE1077)

15 credits

This module will introduce you to what science is and how it grew Then it will consider how theology operates, and therefore how the two subjects relate to one another. This will enable you to look at some classic arguments – Richard Dawkins against divine design, the problem of providence and miracle versus the problem of evil, the alleged fine-tuning of the universe, and the problem of its ultimate end. The module requires no background knowledge of science and can be taken by students of theology, philosophy, or other disciplines in the humanities.
