> CBD Chabad CUES (Centre for Universal Ethics and Society)
> together with Ord Minnett are proud to invite you to a forum entitled:
> Science as a "tool" and Science as a "truth"
> The great assistance which science affords humanity, in its practical
> ability here and now to supply human needs and accomplish technical feats,
> is beyond dispute. At the same time the global, overarching and cosmic
> claims of science become issues of political dispute:
> Was the world created or is it an extension
> (even via a big bang) of pre-existing matter?
> Does the structure of the universe demonstrate a spiritual
> logic or does it represent the play of autonomous forces?
> In this forum, perspectives on the nature and truth of science will be
> presented by
> *Professor John Schuster,* a distinguished scholar in the History and
> Philosophy of Science, and *Rabbi Dr Shimon Cowen*, Director of the
> Institute for Judaism and Civilization.
> Please see below for a short blurb on the speakers.

> Zelman Cowen, established the Institute for Judaism and Civilization in
> 1998. Its mission is to explore the interface of Judaism and the general
> ethical tradition from Sinai at the root of the world cultures with the
> culture and sciences of contemporary society. His most recent focus has
> been on the application of universal ethics in the tradition from Sinai to
> questions of contemporary politics and society. His latest book, Politics
> and Universal Ethics, received bipartisan launches from members of the NSW,
> Victorian and Tasmanian parliaments.
>    What is CUES?CUES - Centre for Universal Ethics and Society - is

> from the perspective of universal ethics. Universal ethics is the code of
> fundamental shared values found at the root of the world religions and

> integrity and social responsibility by promoting the study of universal
> ethical principles, personal virtue, and moral leadership.
