Teilhard Religion and Science Society
Loyola Marymount University
Los Angeles, California
Core planners and participants of this group represent fields of theology and the natural sciences. Membership and outreach is open to scholars, clergy, campus ministries, and students in science and theology, denominational bodies, and interested community members. The society meets monthly during the academic year to study and discuss issues such as religious cosmologies, physics and ecology, scientific studies of religious experience, health sciences as common ground for impact of science and faith, quantum physics and neuroscience, and end of life issues. Discussions build upon and extend the pioneering works of leading thinkers in science and faith and will focus on an inter-religious orientation, engaging Judaism, Christianity, and Islamic perspectives. Additional perspectives are also welcome to join in the conversations. Matching funds are provided by the Center for Religion and Spirituality, the Department of Natural Sciences, the Jesuit community, the College of Engineering and Science, the Center for Ignatian Spirituality, and the Department of Theological Studies at Loyola Marymount University, as well as by the Loyola Marymount Extension and private contributions.
