The Marvel of Creation: Food for Thought Module III, Fall 2019
Food for Thought continues November 13th, with the final module of the Fall semester:
What does it mean to be an animal, and what does it mean to be a person? What is life? How ought we think about and relate to God’s Creation in light of these things? These weighty questions will be central to the third Food for Thought Module of the Fall semester.
Dr. Janice Chik, Barry Foundation Fellow at the University of Pennsylvania and Director of Collegium Institute’s Magi Project, will facilitate this module, drawing from diverse thinkers and texts to help students explore these ideas both philosophically and scientifically.
Potential topics for discussion include animal and human consciousness, the possible role of a creative deity within the evolution of creaturely life, questions about “natures” or “essences” in Creation, animal ethics, and the roles of and relationship between science and philosophy in exploring these ideas.
