Conversation Project: Is Technology Outpacing Our Humanity
April 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
“Is Technology Outpacing Our Humanity?” public conversations at 7 p.m. on Apr. 30 at The Josephy Center, 403 Main St. in Joseph, and May 1 in La Grande at 112 Depot St.. No charge and open to the public.
Description: Technology is often considered a cure-all to our modern challenges. It is, undeniably, a powerful tool in addressing our greatest endeavors. Whether it be automation, the iPhone, or gene editing, some say our technical capacities have outstripped our moral knowledge. Others believe they have provided us immense creativity in dealing with our biggest ethical questions. Are these mutually exclusive? Facilitator Manuel Padilla leads this conversation to explore how technology shapes our moral reasoning and our perceptions of, and relationships with, one another.
