Seating still available for McNair Lecture

Laurinburg, NC - Limited seating is still available for the 2014 John Calvin McNair Lecture on Science and Theology Oct. 21 at St. Andrews University.

The free event begins with a dinner at 6 p.m. with the lecture set to begin at 7 p.m. Seating is limited so reservations are required. Make your reservation by contacting rsvp@sapc.edu or calling 910-277-3968 no later than Tuesday, Oct. 14. Please include that the reservation is for the McNair Lecture, the names of the attendees and any special meal requirements.

Father Paul Mueller, religious superior of the Jesuit community at the Vatican Observatory, will present “Here’s Looking at You: Science and Religion in Mutual Regard,” focusing on the Vatican Observatory’s history, institutional setting and current work.

A native of Cincinnati Ohio, Mueller was named to his position as religious superior of the Jesuit community at the Vatican Observatory in 2010. In this position he splits his time between the Observatory’s locations at Castel Gandolfo and Tucson, Ariz. He also serves on the Observatory’s research staff, continuing his own research and writing in history and philosophy of science and in related religion-science issues.

After earning a B.S. in physics at Boston University, Mueller entered the Society of Jesus in 1982. As a Jesuit he completed additional degrees, including a Master of Arts in philosophy at Loyola University Chicago and a Master of Divinity and a Master of Sacred Theology from the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley. He has also earned a Master of Science in physics from the University of Chicago and a Ph.D. through the University of Chicago’s interdisciplinary Committee for Conceptual Historical Studies of Science.

The McNair lecture was established by the 1857 will of John Calvin McNair who asked that “the object of which lecture(s) shall be to show the mutual bearing of Science and Theology upon each other….”

This is the ninth lecture hosted by St. Andrews, with Dr. Owen Gingerich, the Rev. Dr. Nancey Murphy, Dr. Robert J. Russell, Dr. Philip Clayton, Dr. Francisco J. Ayala, Dr. Marcelo Gleiser, Dr. Homes Rolston III and Dr. Jennifer Wiseman presenting the previous lectures.

The series was previously hosted by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and included such noted speakers as Stephen J. Gould, John C. Polkinghorne, Ian G. Barbour, Jr. Robert Oppenheimer, Charles A. Coulson and John Dewey.
