Being Human: Negotiating Religion, Law, and Science in the Classroom and the Courtroom

Abstract:     
This essay reflects on the challenges of finding a language in which to translate among law, religion, and science, using the court cases concerning the contemporary U.S. science classroom as the focus. The exemplary case will be that of the high school biology teacher now required by law, in many states, to teach evolution as "the organizing principle of life science" to students who claim a religious — and a constitutional — right to reject such teaching.
