Oregon Humanities' Conversation Project: Beyond Human
DISCUSSION ABOUT HUMAN NATURE AND TECHNOLOGY
The June 16, 2014 event is part of Oregon Humanities' statewide Conversation Project.
Corvallis, Ore.March 28, 2014Throughout history religious scholars and philosophers have debated what makes humans unique in the animal kingdom. More recently, evolutionary biologists and cognitive scientists have contributed new thinking to our ideas about human nature. Has the essence of what it is to be human shifted over time? How might science and technologysuch as recent rapid advances in bioengineering and other fieldschallenge and reshape
our understanding of what it means to be human? This is the focus of "Beyond Human? Science, Technology, and the Future of Human Nature," a conversation with Prakash Chenjeri on Monday, June 16, 2014 at 7 PM at The Whiteside Theatre, 361 SW Madison Avenue for only $2. This program is hosted by The Whiteside Theatre Foundation and sponsored by Oregon Humanities.
Chenjeri is an associate professor of philosophy and director of the Philosophy Program at Southern Oregon University, where he has been teaching since 1995. He teaches a wide variety of subjects, including moral and political philosophy, philosophy of science, and issues at the intersection of science and religion.
Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state's future.
