Religion and Science

Jewish Book Week 2012

The Great Partnership: God, Science and the Search for Meaning by Jonathan Sacks is the starting point for a conversation between the Chief Rabbi and mathematician Marcus du Sautoy, chaired by Daniel Glaser. They will explore the sometimes fraught relationship between religion and science in different cultures but will more specifically discuss belief and scepticism, open-mindedness and intolerance to the challenge of the other or the unknown. The Chief Rabbi and the atheist mathematician may find they have more in common than expected. This conversation was recorded as part of Jewish Book Week that took place in February 2012.
