Manufacturing Humans: The Borderlands Between Human and Divine Control

Professor D. Gareth Jones:  ISCAST (NSW) - CASE Lecture 
Date: 29 May, 2009
Venue: New College, University of NSW

 

                                                                           

Professor D. Gareth Jones presented this ISCAST-CASE lecture in the Common Room at New College, The University of NSW at 7.30 pm on Friday May 29th.  

Prof Gareth Jones is a Professor of Anatomy & Structural Biology and Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Otago University in New Zealand. He has a special interest and expertise in the interaction of bioethics and Christian theology and has written many books and book chapters in this area.

Abstract of Lecture: This is a broad overview of the reproductive technologies looking especially at the varying ways in which Christians have responded to them since the mid-1980s to the present day. In the light of this I conclude that a Christian commitment should be directed at arguing for ways in which the technologies should be applied rather than in whether the technologies should or should not exist.
