Description

Inside Our Awakening Universe: The New Cosmic Story and the Meaning of Faith

John F. Haught, Distinguished Research Professor, Department of Theology, Georgetown University

“Scientists now know that the universe is a story still unfolding. From the perspective of physics the cosmos may look like a process of heat exchanges and energy transformations, but if we look deep inside we see that the universe has also given rise, at least on Earth, to beings eager to understand where they came from, where they are going, and what they should be doing with their lives. From this “inside” perspective, then, the universe is a story of awakening. But how are we to read the story? Is its awakening a mere departure destined for an eternal sleep? This lecture examines three distinct ways of answering these question, and in doing so it offers a new understanding of the spiritual life.”

Professor John F. Haught has researched, lectured and taught on the subject of science and faith for over 30 years. He has dedicated many years to the position that science and religion are not mutually exclusive, both are seeking understanding of natural phenomena but from different, non-competing methods.

Author of over 20 books, the most recent of which are:

  • The New Cosmic Story: Inside Our Awakening Universe: (New Haven: Yale University Press, 2017)

  • Resting on the Future: Catholic Theology for an Unfinished Universe (Bloomsbury Press, 2015)

  • Science and Faith: A New Introduction (New York: Paulist Press, 2013)

  • Making Sense of Evolution: Darwin, God, and The Drama of Life (Louisville: Westminster/John Knox Press, 2010)

  • God and the New Atheism: A Critical Response to Dawkins, Harris, and Hitchens (Louisville: Westminster/John Knox Press, 2008)

ITP is delighted to welcome Professor John F. Haught to the University and we hope you will join us for fascinating and challenging evening.
