Evil: Perspectives from Theology and Science
Click for directions and map.
Carol Rausch Albright has been named Visiting Professor of Religion and Science at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. She and her husband, physicist John R. Albright, will co-chair a seminar entitled "Evil: Perspectives from Theology and Science" at LSTC in Spring, 2007.
Expert guest speakers will cover themes of good and evil, not only from traditional sources but also in myth and even pop culture (think computer games). Added to the mix will be insights from the sciences--including physics, evolutionary theory, ecology, primatology, psychology, sociology, and medical science--tracing the co-mingling of causes and outcomes. The series will conclude with some insights for our time. The seminar will be offered for graduate credit through seven Chicago area schools of theology, and will also be available to auditors and visitors.
