Science and the Human Person

The question of what it means to be human has never been more relevant. Are we just our brains? Or is there more to us? Will computers one day be able to do everything that we can do? And if so, what does that say about our value? And what will become of the planet on which humans emerged? These developments at the cutting edge of science go right to the heart of the question of human value and purpose and in the universe. 

At this workshop we will consider three streams falling under the heading of Science and the Human Person:
●    The Human Person and Intelligent Machines
●    The Human Person and the Environment
●    The Human Person and the Body

The keynote speakers are:
●    Dr Sharon Dirckx
●    Jessica Wyatt
●    Dr Mike Moorcroft
●    Dr Hannah Christensen
●    Prof Nigel Crook
●    Prof John Lennox

The Science for Seminaries (SfS) project seeks to provide an exciting interface that enables ordinands at Wycliffe Hall to engage with questions about God, the universe, and the place of human beings in it that are thrown up by advances in modern science. The SfS project at Wycliffe Hall aims to further this dialogue along various avenues including guest lectures by practicing scientists, opportunities for ordinands to have tours of science laboratories and gain a deeper understanding of the world of scientific practice, and a three-day summer workshop on a theme at the intersection of theology and science.
