“Who are We? Human Evolution, Science and Faith” - The Revd Dr Jeremy Law - Dean of the Chapel A joint seminar series from INCISE, NICER and LASAR Running from 21st March – 16th May: Seminar 1: The scientific method has proved itself to be an extraordinarily powerful tool in addressing certain questions. But it has integral limits and gaps which mean that its results inherently point beyond the framework of their construction. The latest scientific account of human origins will be examined as a test case. What does it mean, for example, that the emergence of symbolic thinking, essential to human rationality, is linked to the arrival of a clear religious sensibility?
