Workshop del STOQ III Project

STOQ III Project Workshop

Santiago Collado and Enrique Moros attended a workshop in Rome on 26 and 27 October 2007, organised by Rafael Martínez, from the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, as part of the STOQ III Project, on "Biologia evolutiva, ordine e creazione" (Evolutionary biology, order and creation).

It was a meeting that brought together participants from various Italian universities and from different countries and from fields as diverse as botany, zoology and metaphysics. They had the opportunity to exchange views and information both on scientific research news and on ongoing philosophical developments that aim to integrate the different intellectual advances into an overall view of reality, especially from a biological perspective.

Santiago Collado presented the epistemological assumptions of the confrontation between the intelligent design and the various evolutionary theories, showing the most important points defended by the members of the ID and their scientific and philosophical limitations.

Enrique Moros presented an ontological argument in which he underlined human uniqueness and exposed an original development of the doctrine of creation that especially emphasises this uniqueness.
