Today we talk with a Catholic philosopher whose work brings her in contact with evolution, the image of God, and extraterrestrials.
Marie George is Professor of Philosophy at St. John’s University. In addition to holding a Ph.D. in Philosophy, she also holds Master’s degrees in Biology and in Pastoral Theology. Her interests lie primarily in the areas of natural philosophy and philosophy of science. She has received several awards from the John Templeton Foundation for her work in Science and Religion, and she was co-recipient of a grant from the Center for Theology and Natural Sciences for an interdisciplinary project entitled “The evolution of sympathy and morality.” Professor George has authored over 70 peer-reviewed articles and two books Christianity and Extra Terrestrials: A Catholic Perspective and Stewardship of Creation. As well as editing The Essential Guide to Catholic Spiritual Classics.
