About the Templeton"Science and Religion in East Asia" Project
The Templeton “Science and Religion in East Asia” Project aims to study science and technology in religious and cultural contexts of East Asia. We examine how human understanding of the world and its application to various fields of cultural and social life were shaped under the influence of East Asian religious perspectives―Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism. We also pay attention to the interactions of East Asian science with sciences from regions dominated by other religions, Christianity in particular. These various lines of research will illuminate different kinds of relation of science and religion, different kinds of links, interactions and dependencies.
