Through knowledge, expressed in technology, modern humanity seeks to control all of nature—even human nature. Francis Bacon’s ‘knowledge is power’ has come to mean the power to master the universe—and humanity has demonstrated a profound capacity for such mastery, exercised in the forward march of technological progress. The benefits that this progress has brought us raise a serious challenge: modernity’s promise of progress through technological advancement has been, on some levels, so thoroughly fulfilled that it can be difficult to criticize the nature and continued promise of technology. Yet criticism is warranted, and caution required. Why? The issue has to do with power. This lecture will examine the technological age and lay the groundwork for a theologically informed response to the forms of power in question.

This lecture is part of our 2017 Summer Evening Public Lecture series. 

Dr. Ashley Moyse joined Regent College in 2016 as Post-Doctoral Fellow in Theology and Science, a position funded by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation. In addition to his role at Regent he also holds honorary research appointments at Vancouver School of Theology and the University of Divinity (Melbourne). With training in both the applied human sciences and in constructive and moral theology, he is interested in exploring the implications of theology for the human and natural sciences, technology, and medical humanities.
