Congress 2015

International Congress on Science and/or Religion:
a 21st Century Debate
(Vienna, 27-29 August 2015)

The Science and Religion Debate in Current Social Context

The progresses of modern sciences and technology have led to remarkable insights into the nature of universe and human life, challenging or transforming the former traditional worldviews and narrations. Sigmund Freud University and the International Society for Science and Religion share the view that the dialogue between religions and modern sciences remains crucial for the 21st century to analyze and examine these challenges that arise at the interface of science and religion.

The aim of the conference is to bring these various scientific perspectives into dialogue with the study of how religion is understood by the faith traditions of the world. How does science affect how religion is regarded? Does it confirm or invalidate the perspective of faith, or does it lead religious people to revise their understanding of religious practices and experience?

The conference will provide a space to discuss the achievements of sciences and its impact on traditional religious beliefs and worldviews. Different viewpoints, and the perspectives of different mediating disciplines will be brought to bear on these key issues.
In invited lectures and discussions, internationally renowned scholars and researchers will consider the crucial questions of how sciences and or/religions, can contribute to our worldviews and way of life in the 21st century.

Registration includes name badge, congress folder, program booklet and book of abstracts.
The Congress participation certificate includes confirmation of 30 hours- Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

This Congress is organized by Sigmund Freud University Vienna and the International Society for Science and Religion.
