Remaking Humanity course at CBHD

Abstract:
Current developments in biotechnology, including human genetics, human-animal hybridization, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, pharmacologicals, and robotics, portend both great benefit and tremendous challenges to a truly human future. This course will explore these technological developments, elucidate a theory of specie-typical functioning, suggest a theological response to these developments, and analyze the ways they may affirm or erode human wellbeing.
