Beyond Human: Science, Technology, and the Future of Human Nature

January 28, 2017

Throughout 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 technology—such as recent rapid advances in bioengineering and other fields—challenge and reshape our understanding of what it means to be human?

Prakash Chenjeri, an associate professor of philosophy at Southern Oregon University, will lead participants in a thoughtful conversation about these questions and more.
