Blurring Boundaries: Science and Religion in an Asian Context – Thursday, 26 March 2020 at 1400 GMT/UTC

Why does Enlightenment thought struggle to connect facts with values, while Asian thought struggles to separate them? What are the implications for relating faith and science on these accounts? Reconsidering the relationship between modern science and faith is crucial if we are to engage in academic discourse in Asia and other contexts that don’t necessarily subscribe to the binaries often associated with the Enlightenment.

Join us on Thursday, 26 March 2020 at 1400 GMT as Dr. Michael Brownnutt, Associate Director of the Faith and Science Collaborative Research Forum at the University of Hong Kong, explores these questions as a physicist trained in the west but living and working in an Asian context.
