Dr. Joseph Maloy reflects on Education and Truth: Searching for God in the Methodology of Science in the first of four retreats for faculty and administrators of all faiths.
The Heart of the University Retreat Series gives faculty and administrators of all faiths the opportunity for input and guided reflection. The series is co-sponsored by the Office of Mission and Ministry and the Center for Vocation and Servant Leadership.
The first retreat, given by Dr. Joseph Maloy on the theme of Education and Truth: Searching for God in the Methodology of Science, will be held on Wednesday, October 5, 2016, from 9 to 11 a.m. in the Chancellor's Suite, Student Center.
Because scientific truth is held in such high regard, it is sometimes forgotten that the truth delivered by any science depends upon the validity of its methodology. By applying to the most recent scientific methodology, Lonergan's understanding of conscious intentionality, we advance an epistemology of science that is consistent with current Church teaching on ethics and religion. We thereby obtain what might be a profound insight into the true meaning of the phrase "Catholic Intellectual Tradition."
Joseph Maloy is an Associate Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry and Catholic Studies. His Ph.D. in physical chemistry is from the University of Texas.
