Reading Group

HPS Faculty Reading Group

Each semester UD faculty meet weekly to discuss the theories, methods and achievements of the natural and human sciences and mathematics. The fall semester is dedicated to books by leading scientists about their own research areas. In the spring, discussion focuses on the historical, philosophical, theological, and social dimensions of science. Another, less formal reading group meets two or three times each summer, discussing a different book at each meeting.

Check out our current reading schedule, books we've read in the past, and related book recommendations from UD professors. Note that each of the books we read is the subject of lively disagreements, and is not necessarily endorsed by the University of Dallas!
