The Challenge of Transhumanism
Speakers: Paul Harper (Physics & Astronomy), Derek Schuurman (Computer Science), and Jim Bradley (Mathematics & Statistics)
Transhumanism is a movement that seeks to better human existence by employing various technological enhancements, some of which exist now while some are being sought. Among these are genetic modifications, forms of artificial intelligence, life extension, and brain uploading to computers. This seminar will examine these and other such technologies from a Christian perspective. It will discuss theological aspects as well as ethical and policy issues.
