Evolution News & Views announces the 2013 summer seminar for University students in both the natural and social sciences. Want to spend a free (all-expenses-paid) nine days in Seattle learning about ID and interacting with top scientists and scholars in the field? Don’t delay; getting applying today!
Discovery Institute’s Center for Science & Culture is announcing two intensive nine-day seminars on intelligent design for college and graduate students during the summer of 2013.
“We’re fully aware that ardent defenders of long-entrenched ideas like Darwinism aren’t likely to change their minds,” says senior fellow Dr. Jay Richards who oversees the seminar series. “So we’re investing in the next generation of scientists and scholars. This year we’ll welcome 40 students from all over the world, focusing on two distinct study tracks.”
The first study track, the CSC Seminar on Intelligent Design in the Natural Sciences, will prepare students to make research contributions advancing the growing science of intelligent design (ID). The seminar will explore cutting-edge ID work in fields such as molecular biology, biochemistry, embryology, developmental biology, paleontology, computational biology, ID-theoretic mathematics, cosmology, physics, and the history and philosophy of science.
The second study track, the C.S. Lewis Fellows Program on Science and Society, will explore the growing impact of science on politics, economics, social policy, bioethics, theology, and the arts. The program is named after celebrated British writer C.S. Lewis, a perceptive critic of both scientism and technocracy in books such as The Abolition of Man and That Hideous Strength.
