Science, Contemplation, and Ideology
The Catholic Studies Program proudly presents, "Science, Contemplation, and Ideology" by Dr. Carlo Lancellotti on Monday, October 21 at 3:30 p.m. in the Chancellor's Suite of the University Center.
The task of the Christian imagination in front of science is not to try and replace it with some kind of "different" science, but bring it back to its original contemplative and esthetic impulsive. Whenever this happens, science is purified by the incrustations of ideology and re-energized as science. Professor Carlo Lancellotti will present a lecture proposing a simple way Christian scientists can effectively renew the practice of science.
