Reminder: Two Days Left to Apply For Discovery Institute Summer Seminar Program on Intelligent Design, Science, and Culture

[UPDATE: Application deadline for students to apply for summer seminar series is April 30, 2008, meaning there is only today and tomorrow left to apply.]

Discovery Institute is pleased to announce two intensive summer seminars on intelligent design, science, and culture from July 11-20, 2008 in Seattle. The first seminar is for students in the natural sciences and philosophy of science; the second seminar is for students in the social sciences and humanities (including politics, law, journalism, and theology). Both seminars are designed for highly-motivated college students who seek a deeper understanding of science and its implications for society. Faculty for the seminars will include mathematician William Dembski, author of The Design Revolution; biologist Jonathan Wells, author of the Politically Incorrect Guide to Darwinism and Intelligent Design; philosopher of science Stephen Meyer, co-author of Science and Evidence of Design in the Universe; microbiologist Scott Minnich, co-author of Explore Evolution: The Arguments For and Against Neo-Darwinism; political scientist John West, author of Darwin Day in America: How Our Politics and Culture Have Been Dehumanized in the Name of Science; and Jonathan Witt, co-author of A Meaningful World: How the Arts and Sciences Reveal the Genius of Nature.

Discovery Institute will pay expenses for students who are accepted into this special program (travel, lodging, meals, books and other course materials). The deadline for applications is April 30, and complete information (including an application) can be found at www.discovery.org/summerseminar. Requests for further information should be directed to Summer Seminar Director Dr. Bruce Gordon at bgordon@discovery.org.
