From Sorcery, Alchemy, Science, Prayer, Art, and Evolution to Mystery; a lecture on Zoom given by Jim Malone, 11am 30th November 2021.

November 30, 2021 @ 11:00 - 13:00

Dear member

You are invited to a presentation by Jim Malone on Zoom entitled  From Sorcery, Alchemy, Science, Prayer, Art, and Evolution to Mystery, at 11am 30th November 2021.

This is the story of a journey that starts with alchemy and weaves in and out of history, science, literature, art and religious studies. The silos in which these disciplines live (often relatively unchallenged) and the borders between them, do not always serve the end users of knowledge and insight.

This is illustrated in a three-part account of how science without borders might have improved and informed religious teaching on aspects of practice. In addition, an example is provided in which religious traditions without borders might well have influenced the methodology of science in a way that would almost certainly have enhanced it. The story ends with a surprising no borders reflection.

Jim Malone is Robert Boyle Professor (Emeritus) of Medical Physics and was Dean of Medicine. He works/worked as a consultant with international organisations, including WHO, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), and the EC. He is an active  member of the TRA writing group. Recent publications include books on Ethics for Radiation Protection in Medicine, and on Mystery and the Culture of Science.
