Fall 2021 Schedule / Science & Philosophy / SCIENCE AND SCIENTISTS
Coordinators: Steve Allen, Jim Brook, Judy Weis
Advances in science uncover wonders that transform our lives and deepen our understanding of humanity, life, and the world around us. Science literacy is the key that opens doors to the extraordinary beauty of our natural world.
This course will explore various pathways of scientific inquiry, their impacts and limits, and highlight some of the men and women responsible for ground- breaking research. In the fall 2021 term, with the Across the Universe course on a one-term break, we will be including several talks that address Earth’s immediate neighborhood and the further reaches of the observable universe.
Prior knowledge or technical expertise in math or science is not required. Just bring your questions and sense of wonder.
