    Becoming Modern: Recreating Past, Present and Future

    7:00 pmProfessor Meic Pearse | The Round Church, Cambridge

    Modernization – leaving the village for the cities; industrialization; working outside the home rather than in it; individualism and the severing of community ties – has been the defining human experience of the past two and a half centuries. This has had profound consequences for our sense of identity, and has opened the door to the rise of modern ideologies: secular metanarratives that claim meta-explanatory powers. It has also transformed what the past means for ordinary people – with consequences for how we view the present and the future. This lecture will explore some of the more important challenges this presents for a coherent, Christian view of the world, and of ourselves.

Transhumanism: Eternity in Their Hearts and a Chip in Their Shoulder

Transhumanism: Eternity in Their Hearts and a Chip in Their Shoulder

If the mortal coil were updated to fibre optic cable, would we have to shuffle off it? Welcome to Gnosticism 2.0, where the positively retro fear of mortality and disdain for physical bodies collides with techno-determinism. In this Round Church Talk, Florence Gildea explores the religiosity of transhumanism and explains why Jesus will probably not be ‘coming with the iCloud’.
