Theology and Scientific Revolutions
This course will critically introduce students to several great theories and ideas of natural science, their subsequent influence upon scientific knowledge and methods, and their reception by Western Christian theology, particularly in the Catholic tradition. This course will comprise of excerpts from four historical eras of natural science: the classical/medieval period, including Plato’s Timaeus, Augustine’s Commentary on the Literal Meaning of Genesis, and Aquinas’s “On the Eternity of the World; the early modern period, including Copernicus’s On the Revolution of the Celestial Orbs, Galileo’s Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, and Newton’s Principia (with a particular emphasis on Galileo’s trial before the Roman Inquisition); the late-modern period, including Charles Lyell’s The Principles of Geology and Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species (with a particular emphasis upon evolutionary theories); and finally the last century including Einstein’s Relativity and Heisenberg’s Physics and Philosophy. Special attention will be paid to theological issues and implications of these theories, and various church documents and theological works that engaged with them in their contexts.
