About this video

Runtime: 37 mins

Ross Thompson discusses the ongoing struggle between science and religion, suggesting it is more complex than is portrayed. To better understand the complexity of ideas, Thompson introduces a concept of "worlds" which represent different fundamental truths and their implications for science and religion. These ‘worlds’ range from naïve realism to dualism and materialism offering various perspectives on reality. Thompson also examines Descartes' dualism and the rise of the scientific method, showing how this has shaped the divide between the known mental world and the inferred physical world.
