Get Inspired

CBD Chabad CUES (Centre for Universal Ethics and Society)
together with Ord Minnett are proud to invite you to a forum entitled:

Science as a "tool" and Science as a "truth"

The great assistance which science affords humanity, in its practical ability here and now to supply human needs and accomplish technical feats, is beyond dispute. At the same time the global, overarching and cosmic claims of science become issues of political dispute:

Was the world created or is it an extension
(even via a big bang) of pre-existing matter?

Does the structure of the universe demonstrate a spiritual
logic or does it represent the play of autonomous forces?

In this forum, perspectives on the nature and truth of science will be presented by
Professor John Schuster, a distinguished scholar in the History and Philosophy of Science, and Rabbi Dr Shimon Cowen, Director of the Institute for Judaism and Civilization.
Please see below for a short blurb on the speakers.

Rabbi Dr. Shimon Cowen

Rabbi Dr Shimon Cowen, son of former Governor General of Australia, Sir Zelman Cowen, established the Institute for Judaism and Civilization in 1998. Its mission is to explore the interface of Judaism and the general ethical tradition from Sinai at the root of the world cultures with the culture and sciences of contemporary society. His most recent focus has been on the application of universal ethics in the tradition from Sinai to questions of contemporary politics and society. His latest book, Politics and Universal Ethics, received bipartisan launches from members of the NSW, Victorian and Tasmanian parliaments.
