March 5, 2008: Philip Clayton
The long-held belief that science and religion are polar opposites is being challenged by scholars who are embracing the relatively new concept of emergence. Through his teaching, research and writing, Clayton, a professor of religion and philosophy at Claremont Graduate University and the Ingraham Professor at Claremont School of Theology, presents compelling arguments that emergence allows for the integration of beliefs on both sides of the debate.
After graduating with dual doctoral degrees in philosophy and religious studies from Yale University, Clayton taught at Haverford College, Williams College and California State University, in addition to receiving visiting professorships at Harvard's Divinity School and the University of Munich.
