Divine Action, Determinism, and the Laws of Nature. Scientific Seminar of the Center for Consciousness Studies

8 February, 2023

At this seminar we a discuss book by Jeffrey Kopersky which deals with a longstanding question at the intersection of science, philosophy, and theology: how God might act, or not, when governing the universe. Many believe that determinism would prevent God from acting at all, since to do so would require violating the laws of nature. However, when a robust view of these laws is coupled with the kind of determinism now used in dynamics, a new model of divine action emerges.

Speakers: Evgeny Loginov, Artem Besedin
Participants of the discussion: O. Cherkashina, A. Kuznetsov, V. Vasilyev
