Convocation - Lives of Discovery: Science as a Christian Vocation
Ian Hutchinson

Convocation presentation by Dr. Ian Hutchinson - Lives of Discovery

Click to read more  Click to read more

This is a Natural Sciences Division convocation and our speaker is Dr. Ian Hutchinson. Ian Hutchinson is Professor of Nuclear Science and Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He is an international expert on the physics of plasmas: the ionized fourth state of matter. He led the design, construction, and operation at MIT of a forefront plasma confinement experiment: one of the nation's three major fusion research facilities. Understanding its plasmas, which are hotter than the center of the sun, promotes mankind's effort to generate practical energy from fusion reactions, the power source of the stars. In addition to 200 journal articles and two science text books, he has also written and spoken widely on the relationship between Science and Christianity. His book "Monopolizing Knowledge" explores how the error of scientism arose, how it undermines reason as well as religion, and how it feeds today's culture wars and an excessive reliance on technology.
