|The online course begins on April 7.|
March 17, 2010. Sacramento, CA. Physical distance is no obstacle
to learning, now that online courses are becoming more common
and convenient. For those who have an interest in the
intersection of faith, reason, and science, the University of
Sacramento is offering a four-session online course (only $75) on
"Faith, Physics, and Philosophy."
As a “reflective, non-technical study of
the relationship between faith and reason, religion and science,” the course will
cover topics such as:
• The complementary nature of faith and science
• “Scientism” and the pitfalls of excluding the possibility of religion
• “Fideism” and the dangers of refusing to accept authentic science
• The current “origin of life” debate and how science is
pushing the envelope in ethics
The course will include readings, lectures,
and some online discussion. Students will be able to participate
actively in the class via the online technology.
of the course is Fr Robert Presutti, LC, PhD, the
President of the University of Sacramento. He earned his doctorate
in philosophy from the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum in Rome,
with a specialization in analytical philosophy.
The course will be offered
this upcoming April 7, 14, 21, and 28, on Wednesday
evenings from 6:00 to 7:30 P.M. The cost is $75.
