    'What a Piece of Work is Man':

    A View from the Outside

     

    with Andrew Fellows

    on

    Friday, October 30th at 7:30pm GMT (3:30pm EDT)

     

    Part 3 of 8 in our 'Humanity Matters: Re-enchanting Homo Sapiens' series of webinars.

     

    The sheer range of human capacities is astonishing, even awe-inspiring. How do we account for them all? Today, we are used to explaining human talents reductively, boiling them down quickly to something more basic. This session will beat a path towards an understanding of our humanity which elevates us, even as it grounds us in created reality.

    Human Beings as Knowledge Seekers

     

    with Andrew Fellows

    on

    Friday, November 6th at 7:30pm GMT (2:30pm EST)

     

    Part 4 of 8 in our 'Humanity Matters: Re-enchanting Homo Sapiens' series of webinars.

     

    Blaise Pascal wrote that 'man is but a reed, the most feeble thing in nature, but he is a thinking reed'. So, how is it that we know and how do we know that we know? We will examine how humans apprehend the world, and the light this sheds on who we are.

    'These Restless Hearts':

    Human Beings as Fundamentally Desiring

     

    with Andrew Fellows

    on

    Friday, November 13th at 7:30pm GMT (2:30pm EST)

     

    Part 5 of 8 in our 'Humanity Matters: Re-enchanting Homo Sapiens' series of webinars.

     

    The Philosopher Baruch Spinoza thought that desire was the 'very essence of man'. To be human is to be moved by longing. In this session we will ask what our longings mean: where do they come from, and where do they move us? We will see that our desires, though frequently misdirected and incomplete, provide the essential key to understanding ourselves.

    'Eternity in Our Hearts':

    The Human Relationship to Time

     

    with Andrew Fellows

    on

    Friday, November 20th at 7:30pm GMT (2:30pm EST)

     

    Part 6 of 8 in our 'Humanity Matters: Re-enchanting Homo Sapiens' series of webinars.

     

    'What is time?', asked St Augustine. 'If no one asks me I know, but if I wish to explain it, I know not'. To be human is to have a consciousness of time, including a sense of our mortality. We will examine what it is to live in time as a way of further understanding our uniqueness as human beings.

    'The Abolition of Man':

    Contemporary Threats to Being Human

     

    with Andrew Fellows

    on

    Friday, November 27th at 7:30pm GMT (2:30pm EST)

     

    Part 7 of 8 in our 'Humanity Matters: Re-enchanting Homo Sapiens' series of webinars.

     

    If humans are in need of improvement why shouldn’t we attempt an upgrade and become cyborgs, merging with the machine? Artificial Intelligence and Transhumanism both hold out the hope of future glory for humanity, and attract growing numbers of supporters. But is such hope well-founded, or will it prove a false dawn?

    'A New Humanity':

    The Redeemed Self

     

    with Andrew Fellows

    on

    Friday, December 4th at 7:30pm GMT (2:30pm EST)

     

    Part 8 of 8 in our 'Humanity Matters: Re-enchanting Homo Sapiens' series of webinars.

     

    Mark Twain suggested that 'man is the only animal that blushes – or needs to'. Deep down, we all sense that something is wrong with us, and constantly aspire to live better lives. We will examine the extent of the ‘problem of the human heart’, and point out a better path to redemption.
