JST 523 - Harmony of the Spheres: Judaism and Science

Judaism does not see Science and Religion as antithetical, but as two different spheres in harmony with one another. This course will examine the relationship between Judaism and Science from ancient times to today, including the following topics: Genesis and the Big Bang; Jewish observance and Planetary Science; the Jewish view of the universe; Jews and Medicine; Talmudic views of Obstetrics and Gynecology; Talmudic knowledge of Astronomy, Anatomy and Psychology; and Jewish Ecological Science.
