Professor Peter Harrison discusses the false historical assumptions behind the current perception that “science” and “religion” have always been in conflict. Providing a wide-ranging historical overview, Harrison begins with the early interplay between religious institutions and scientific activity, goes through the transitions from Newton to Darwin, and then reflects on how the solidification of the false “conflict” narrative has played out in the past half-century.
