A three-year research project working toward a comprehensive Christian vision for human flourishing in a world of technology
Involving scholars from Canada, the USA, Germany, and the UK, this collaborative project aims to provide a comprehensive theological assessment of recent technologies' impact on human nature and human life. The research program has three main objectives. First, to establish, in critical dialogue with philosophy, biology, and sociology, a modern theological anthropology in continuity with classic orthodox Christian theology in all three major confessions (Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Protestant). Second, to evaluate visions of human flourishing represented by technological culture, from social media to bio-genetic, enhancement technologies, including transhumanist dreams of transcending the body. Third, to provide a theologically grounded, convincing Christian perspective on human flourishing in an age of technology. All research results will be published in print and internet media.
