Description: In this course we will undertake a collective exploration of the categories of religion and science as they are constructed in relation to each other, then explore how these categories are applied in and shape the world they work to describe. We will study the social phenomenon of the debate between religion and science as a cultural event in the western intellectual tradition that can illuminate how we understand these terms in contemporary popular culture. Our intention will be to understand how knowledge creation itself is structured by cultural forces. This course is designed to be a self-contained intellectual investigation accessible to interested students in any discipline.
