Past and Future of the Science-Religion Dialogue:
Celebrating the Work of Ian G.
October 3-5, 2003
Ian Barbour's pioneering writing in the 1960s and 1970s helped to create
the field of science and religion, and his ongoing work over the past forty
years has explored almost every aspect of it. On his eightieth birthday we
will honor his contribution and look to the future of the dialogue.
The conference sessions deal with methodology; God and nature; theology and
physics; theology and biology; ethics, technology and the environment; and
perspectives from process theology, Roman Catholic theology and Buddhist
thought. Presenters will explore a variety of theological visions of the field's wider dimensions and its frontier challenges. Each speaker will assess what
has been accomplished in the past and help us envision what lies ahead as we
look toward the coming decades in the light of the legacy of Ian G. Barbour.
