Book Discussion “Beyond Matter: Why Science Needs Metaphysics”

29 February 6pm -7.30pm 
Garden Room St.Edmund’s College

You are all warmly invited to attend a book discussion with Professor Roger Trigg, on his book “Beyond Matter: Why Science Needs Metaphysics”, with responses from Revd Dr Rodney Holder (The Faraday Institute) and Dr Andrew Davison (Starbridge Lecturer in Theology).

In his book Professor Trigg (Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Warwick and Senior Research Fellow at the Ian Ramsey Centre, University of Oxford) challenges those who deny that science needs philosophical assumptions. In fact, Professor Trigg claims that the foundations of science themselves have to lie beyond science. It takes reasoning apart from what can be experienced to discover what is not yet known, and this metaphysical reasoning to imagine realities beyond what can be accessed.

This event will be held 6.00pm in the Garden Room at St. Edmund’s College on 29th February, with refreshments. Everyone is very welcome.
