The Human Person: Technology and the Language of Bodily Presence

Session 9: Technology and the Language of Bodily Presence - Mary Stanford

By reflecting on the biblical foundations of human communication, we will examine the formative power of embodied encounter in the life of each person, and discuss the risks that modern social communication technologies pose for our happiness.

The spring season of Adult Faith Formation courses will focus on the theme of The Human Person. The question of what it means to be human is one that societies have wrestled with throughout the ages, yet the times we live in are presenting challenges to our assumptions about humanity in unprecedented ways. This series of talks will draw from the deep roots of Catholic theology, philosophy, and spirituality to propose a conception of The Human Person grounded in the God of Creation and the Revelation of Jesus.
