About the Conference
Genetics, artificial intelligence, climate change, flu vaccinations . . . There’s a lot of scientific debate, both for and against.
But is science being used for the benefit of human beings, or against them?
In The Abolition of Man, C. S. Lewis writes that “the serious magical endeavour and the serious scientific endeavour are twins.”
Like any other discipline of study, science is a tool of understanding. And like any tool, it can serve—or harm—human flourishing.
Join brilliant students and scholars for a weekend of conversation and lecture dedicated to exploring Lewis’s theme and understanding the role of science in human flourishing. Not only will you grasp a complex topic in one weekend—you’ll make friends and have intelligent conversation with thoughtful students and top scholars!
Talks and conversation will cover:
- The problem with the prevailing Darwinian view of nature
- The pros and cons of artificial intelligence (AI)
- The dangers of radical environmentalism
- How a proper understanding of science and nature can promote human flourishing, and save the earth
At this conference, you’ll:
- grasp the perspectives of two important thinkers on science: Charles Darwin and C. S. Lewis
- learn the proper use of science, and how to recognize its abuse
- have intelligent conversation with great people
- come away with a deeper perspective
In an era when most conversations about science and ethics are one-sided, this free conference is a rare opportunity for you to gain perspective, grasp complex topics, and have intelligent conversations with great people.
