Science and Religion in Context
Science and Religion in Context

The endeavors of science and religion, despite obvious differences, each represent a significant path to knowledge about ourselves, our communities, and our universe. Today more than ever before in history we have the opportunity to encounter and consider a panoply of perspectives from around the world on the most fascinating questions of science and the most pressing questions of justice and human flourishing. The Metanexus Institute will host over 200 delegates from more than 29 countries who are current members of an ever-expanding international network of scholars, teachers, clergy, and activists who are dedicated to fostering the constructive engagement of science and religion. Attendees represent a broad diversity of natural and social scientific disciplines and various faith traditions and philosophical perspectives in their transdisciplinary exploration of the foundational questions of humanity, the cosmos, and the divine. Keynotes, panels, papers, and workshops will examine theoretical problems and practical issues in the contemporary encounters between science and religion, as well as to tackle the opportunities and challenges raised for liberal education and humane learning in a globalized context. All are cordially invited to join the conversation and contribute to a renaissance in integral approach to learning and the pursuit of wisdom.


"The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers and cities; but to know someone here and there who thinks and feels with us, and though distant, is close to us in spirit - this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden."

Johann von Goethe
