Being Human: Becoming the Best Bag of Bones You Can Be

This course explores how Christian theology can address our rapidly changing paradigms of human existence. We will explore how process theology can contribute to our knowledge of the human self as gained through the sciences, how a process theological perspective on humanity is useful in contemporary pluralistic and global settings, as well as the theological significance to work and play. Also considered will be issues of gender, sexuality, creativity, and human expression, and how it is no longer possible to assign definitive meaning to categories like man and woman, self and society, freedom and determinism, reason and feeling, soul and body by reference to systems of narrative (including biblical narrative) and interpretation in which those ideas are taken for granted. The theology of human personhood begins with irreducible experiences both universal and particular and searches for functional understandings from the whole range of Christian and non-Christian ways of knowing.
