This seminar explores how some basic findings of modern physics and some contemporary work in analytic philosophy of religion can be brought together in the construction of an interesting and accessible teleological argument for the existence of God.
A publication workshop especially for HDR students and recent doctoral graduates, covering:
- writing for academic journals
- publishing out of your doctorate
- developing article concept maps and outlines
