The Interdisciplinary Studies Portal

Welcome to the portal for Interdisciplinary Studies! This portal features learning projects and other learning resources that have been developed by the Wikiversity Interdisciplinary Studies content development projects.


Featured learning resource

Charles Darwin

Participants in the Science as Religion learning project explore the published literature on this topic then write and discuss their own essays about the relationship between science and religion.

Is Darwinism a religion? Is the very concept something deserving scorn? Is Einstein's theory of gravity a theory with religious implications, or a religion itself? Do such theories depend solely upon observational evidence, or, as the above title implies, could these theories be just simply dogma? Are verifiable observations to be interpreted as facts? Explore this investigation in the Science as Religion project.
