Event:

The Big Bang and the interfaces of knowledge: towards a common understanding of Logic? (WP1433)

A key theme emerging from 2014’s event was the nature and understanding of logic, and this third meeting, in November 2015,  focused on broadening that particular dialogue between scientists, philosophers and theologians.

In 2012 and 2014 CERN and Wilton Park hosted pioneering international conferences on the ‘Big Bang and the Interface of Knowledge’, broadening the dialogue between scientists, philosophers and theologians. The first of the conferences focused on aspects of searching for a common language, while the second conference was directed towards a common understanding of truth.

Objectives and intended outcomes

This meeting sought to:

  • Create a community of practice engaged in advancing inter-disciplinary dialogue between scientists, philosophers, and theologians
  • Give insight into new avenues of joint study and research
  • Encourage a conversation between scientists, philosophers and theologians about making their work more accessible to each other
