Science-Ethics-Faith conferences have been organized by the Polish Christian Faculty Forum since 2005. They are interdisciplinary international meetings, which create a space for free exchange of ideas on the realtionships between these three important areas of human experience and activity. Some people believe that science and faith are in inevitable conflict, some focus more on harmony between these two; some claim they are totally separated. The conference organizers are convinced that Christianity may offer a reasonable and rational perspective on this discussion with applications in the fields of ethics, knowledge, and practical human life.
The first two Science-Ethics-Faith conferences (in 2005 and 2007) didn’t have a specific subtopic. The one in 2009 dealt with different aspects of information. Human digninty was the main idea behind the 2011 conference. And after that:
2013 – Science: limitations and opportunities;
2015 – Science and faith – challenges of the future;
2018 – The impact of ideologies on science and social life.
The texts of the conference presentations and lectures are published in a peer reviewed book format and also available at the Polish Christian Faculty Forum website www.chfpn.pl . Most of them are in the Polish language, but some are in English.
The next Science-Ethics-Faith conference is planned for June 11-14, 2020, at Polish Academy of Science conference facility in Będlewo near Poznań. This time we will focus on God’s Action in the World from an Interdisciplinary Approach. (The list below presents examples of potential conference presentations).
