18th Annual Greenfield Summer Institute: Jews and Science

Opening Dinner

Event Details

Sunday, July 9, 2017
5:30-8 p.m.
Fluno Center, 601 University Avenue
Jews have been important figures in the scientific world since the 19th century. But the investigation and understanding of the natural world - and humans' place in it - has been a Jewish preoccupation since antiquity. This year's institute will take up the Jewish world's relation to science, asking such questions as whether there is a "Jewish" approach to scientific inquiry, how Jewish ethics affects the way science is conducted, and whether the scientific method leaves a place for the divine.
Early Bird: $195 After 6/25/2017: $225 (cost includes opening dinner, lectures and events)
