We are at the very outset of the Age of Biotechnology. This presses anew questions regarding the limits of the human person. What is the human species from the point of view of evolutionary biology? How malleable is this definition? Is there such a thing as a species? How does this compare to philosophical perspectives on the person?
The questions above are not new, but they have acquired new urgency with recent advances in biotechnology. Speakers include: Gaymon Bennett of Arizona State University, Jeffrey Bishop of Saint Louis University, Stephen Meredith of University of Chicago, and Willemien Otten of the University of Chicago Divinity School.
This lecture is free and open to the public — register here. Co-sponsored by the Program on Religion and Medicine at the University of Chicago and McCormick Theological Seminary, the program is made possible by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation.
