Teaching Catholic Thought In An Age of Scientism

TEACHING CATHOLIC THOUGHT

IN AN AGE OF SCIENTISM

Saturday, January 9, 2021 from 12 – 1:30 PM (EST).

https://lmula.zoom.us/j/7397825292 

Zoom ID: 739 782 5292


Event Description: Philosophy professors today are familiar with the challenges of teaching students who believe that all questions (or all questions worth asking) can be or have been resolved by science. How can we effectively teach philosophy, including the rich Catholic Intellectual Tradition, in light of such challenges?

This seminar aims to share strategies and resources for teaching philosophy, both in the classroom and online, with an eye toward helping students think critically about their own scientistic prejudices.

This event will include a series of brief presentations, followed by group discussion. All participants are welcome to bring their own ideas and resources to the conversation.
