Professor Keith Ward an English Anglican priest, philosopher, and theologian. He is a fellow of the British Academy and a priest of the Church of England. Comparative theology and the relationship between science and religion are two of his main topics of interest. He was Regius Professor of Divinity at the University of Oxford from 1991 to 2004.
Some years ago when I worked in Holborn in London, I was in the audience when Keith gave a lunchtime lecture at Gresham College entitled Religion and the Quantum World.
I remember being utterly enthralled and fascinated by the presentation which, amongst other things, demonstrated why materialism is not longer tenable and why idealism is a more plausible worldview – in the light of quantum mechanics.
Today Keith has kindly agreed to discuss this subject again on Blogging Theology.
