The endeavors of science and religion, despite obvious differences,
each represent a significant path to knowledge about ourselves, our
communities, and our universe. Today more than ever before in history
we have the opportunity to encounter and consider a panoply of perspectives
from around the world on the most fascinating questions of science
and the most pressing questions of justice and human flourishing.
The Metanexus Institute will host over 200 delegates from more than
29 countries who are current members of an ever-expanding international
network of scholars, teachers, clergy, and activists who are dedicated
to fostering the constructive engagement of science and religion.
Attendees represent a broad diversity of natural and social scientific
disciplines and various faith traditions and philosophical perspectives
in their transdisciplinary exploration of the foundational questions
of humanity, the cosmos, and the divine. Keynotes, panels, papers,
and workshops will examine theoretical problems and practical issues
in the contemporary encounters between science and religion, as well
as to tackle the opportunities and challenges raised for liberal education
and humane learning in a globalized context. All are cordially invited
to join the conversation and contribute to a renaissance in integral
approach to learning and the pursuit of wisdom.
