Culture One - Discussions on Cultural Differences
Culture One will be focusing on Chapter 5 "The Odd Couple" of Homo Deus at its next meeting, Thursday, October 12th. It builds upon Chapter 4, "The Storytellers", i.e., the stories or fictions that Sapiens are prone to believe. What then is the meaning of "Odd Couple" in this context? Not the relation between human couples, no, it refers to the relation between two areas of human thought: religion and science. The emphasis here is on the nature of religion, its elements (ethics, facts, and guidelines) and the role of science in interpreting these elements. There are many ways to interpret such statements, as well as the basic purpose of each field, and how they relate to our own individual experiences, beliefs, and opinions.
