“The Verge of the New” is an eight-part series of talks given by Dr. Steven Phelps at the Norwegian Baha’i Summer School (July 2nd-8th, 2017).
In these talks, Dr. Steven Phelps, an American Baha’i physicist, philosopher and translator, introduces a way of looking at the past and future of religion in the context of the Scientific Revolution and the Enlightenment.
These talks are a further development of the course “Science, Religion, and the Search for a New Narrative” that was delivered in Acuto, Italy in December 2015. You can listen to that course on Soundcloud here: soundcloud.com/khelabaskett/sets/science-religion-new-narrative.
