The conference brought together some 40 experts from various disciplines to ponder upon the “great dilemma” of how science, religion, and the human future interact. In particular, different panels looked at trends in what is happening to religion around the world, questions about how religion is impacting the current political and economic order, and how the social dynamics unleashed by science and by religion can be reconciled.

Organized with support from the Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs.

Co-Organized by the School of Theology and the Department of Religion, Boston University.
