    Transhumanism, AI and the Future of Humanity

    7:00 pmAndrew Fellows | The Round Church, Cambridge

    'Ye shall be as gods'. The temptation of self-deification is as old as the book of Genesis. Much newer is the staggering array of powerful technologies we can enlist to realise our dreams of 'improving' and redefining the human person, from genetic therapy to AI. In this talk, Andrew Fellows takes us to the fundamentally religious core of transhumanism and asks some hard questions of our newfound techno-religiosity.

The Plausibility Project

Project Abstract

How do things occupy or leave ‘the realm of possibility’? How is it that some ideas and beliefs are plausible and others are not? An idea or belief’s plausibility is tightly bound to the unique philosophical foundations of the cultural moment in question; to what sociologist Peter Berger refers to as ‘plausibility structures’. This project seeks to explore what plausibility is, how plausibility operates, and how past and present cultures, with their unique ‘plausibility structures’, have received and responded to the Christian worldview in such different ways.
