Robert Thurman, Philip Kitcher, Finny Kuruvilla

Columbia University 2005

In this panel discussion Robert Thurman (preeminent Buddhist scholar), Phillip Kitcher (Professor of Philosophy of Science), and Finny Kuruvilla (Medical Doctor) comprise a learned and religiously diverse panel that speak frankly about their own core beliefs, and takes questions about the problem of evil, comforting the sick and dying, and the nature of truth. The range of responses of this group that contains a Buddhist (Thurman), a Humanist (Kitcher), and a Christian (Kuruvilla) provides an interesting dialogue and a useful survey of the way different worldviews address some of the most pressing of questions.
