Former BioLogos board member Richard Mouw will be presenting with Rosalind Picard for a conversation titled “Understanding Transhumanism” as a part of the Trinity Forum series “Discovery and Doxology,” in partnership with Church of the Advent, on Friday, September 10th.
“In this Online Conversation, theologian and author Richard Mouw and scholar and inventor Rosalind Picard will discuss how to think wisely about transhumanism. Rapid developments in artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies can add confusion to the existential questions of who we are and why we are here. Through this conversation, Mouw and Picard will explore the potential benefits and cautions of these technologies and thoughtfully examine the philosophical foundation of transhumanism.”
