THEO 695 – A Catholic Approach to Science
Thursday evenings, July 11-August 22
6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. | Holy Spirit College, Malta Hall
Dr. Randal Mandock

Course Description: St. Augustine in his commentary on the first three chapters of Genesis, warned Christians not to try to explain theology by means of the natural sciences (knowledge of the natural world held "as being certain from reason and experience"), nor to explain the natural sciences using theology. Each field of knowledge must be pursued in accordance with the methods proper to itself. The saint in this seminal work laid out the boundaries between the human sciences and the sacred sciences. This class will explore the distinctive natures, methods, and results of scientific versus theological approaches to understanding the created universe.  Topics will include the nature of science and of religion; science and miracles in the Bible; the uniqueness of Earth’s environment; Galileo and his precursors; the nature of the human person. (audit fee $150; $735 for credit -- students may obtain 1.5 hours of credit for additional meetings and assignments, in consultation with the College)
