Forum Boundary Questions
Akademie der Diozese Rottenburg-Stuttgart
This forum, founded in February 2001, deals with the fundamental questions that arise when engaging in dialogue “from the boundary area of natural sciences and theology”. A network of scientists and academics involved in interdisciplinary research gather to exchange ideas and discuss the expanding landscape of topics that emerge. Such subjects as scientific and spiritual dimensions of cloning; knowledge, wisdom and faith; science and religion in contemporary public education; and questions of free will vs. determinism; are considered during group discussions. These conversations are augmented with guest speakers, focusing on specific themes, twice yearly. A website complements the forum discussions as a supplement for networking and idea exchange. The broader public is invited to academy conferences and symposia as the dialogue continues to grow. Members offer their expertise and understanding through presenting lectures at area institutions and offering public events to bring new voices into considerations.
