Keith S. Thomson, Terry Lecture at Yale
In the last 300 years, science and religion, however construed, have diverged so much as almost
no longer to be recognizable to each other, according to Thomson, a biologist and historian of science. In these
lectures he will examine first the interplay between science and religion in the 18th and
19th centuries, principally in the lives and thoughts of two familiar, but very different
intellectual giants, Thomas Jefferson and Charles Darwin.
