Theology of the Quantum World
Dr Mark Harris has been awarded a grant from the Issachar Fund for a project on the 'Theology of the Quantum World.'
The two-year part-time funding will allow Dr Harris to write a monograph on the topic and organises a series of workshops.
Dr Harris says:
“Quantum mechanics is foundational in physics, and as a consequence it is often referred to in theological and religious descriptions of creation and divine action.
“However, the science is notoriously difficult, which means that theological engagement with the subject has been patchy at best.
“This project will help theologians and clergy to make use of the science more responsibly and with much greater insight than hitherto.”
