The Talk:

In this presentation, Steven will discuss Muslim and Hindu views of science in relation to three typologies: relations between religion and science; modes of religious authority; and types of religious reasoning. Brief concluding comments will suggest the value of this broader framework for making sense of relations between Christianity and science.
