Kuyper Scholars Program, engineering, Nicholas Wolterstorff, Kuyper Prize Lecture, excellence


This paper is a response to Nicholas Wolterstorff's 2014 Kuyper Prize Lecture given in the Miller Chapel at Princeton Theological Seminary and titled "Art, Justice and Liturgy". Its purpose is to continue Wolterstorff's discussion by considering the affinity that engineering has with art, liturgy, and justice – or, more precisely, the affinity that the practice of scientific innovation and design has with “the actions of paying absorbed attention to some work of the arts, of doing and seeking justice and of enacting the liturgy." It is an attempt to recognize engineering as a mode of "acknowledging goodness".
