What’s New at the Zygon Center for Religion and Science?


The website and the logo! Have a look around. You’ll see many ways in which we will use this space to engage questions, encourage creativity, and explore connections.

The new logo includes images of neurons, roots, and the Chicago skyline. Each image points to a piece of the Zygon Center’s history. We have long been concerned with biology, evolution, culture, and neuroscience. It celebrates our roots in Chicago. Before we were the Zygon Center for Religion and Science, we were the Chicago Center for Religion and Science. (For the full story, see our History.)

Roots and neurons are about more than just biology and neuroscience. They are about connections. They have creative potential, and they can be inspiring.

For more than 25 years, we have been about bringing together scientists, theologians, philosophers, religious leaders, community organizers, and other interested persons to work together. Our new website is one more way to bring folks together to yoke religion and science for the common good.

Check back in the coming weeks and months. We will be growing into the opportunities that this new online home offers. You will find new blog posts, opportunities for discussion in the forums, and resources from our curriculum project under the “Teaching” tabs.

As we launch the new website, we want to thank Mary Claire Hersch for all her behind-the-scenes work in designing, maintaining, and updating the Zygon Center’s previous website. Her work made this update possible, and we are so grateful for her dedication to the Zygon Center. Thank you!

Dr. Lea F. Schweitz
Director, Zygon Center for Religion and Science
