Lunch Talk with Neuroscientist Dr. Sharon Dirckx


Time: Thursday, September 12, 2019 12:00 PM

Location: Graves Hall 1167

Dr. Dirckx is a Senior Academic Tutor at the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics and a guest lecturer at Wycliffe Hall, University of Oxford, England. She has her Ph.D. in brain imaging (functional MRI) from the University of Cambridge and has held research positions in the UK and USA. Sharon speaks and lectures internationally on science, theology, ‘mind and soul’ and the problem of evil. She is also the author of the award-winning book, Why?: Looking at God, evil and personal suffering (2013). Her recently released book, Am I just my brain?, examines questions of human identity in light of modern neuroscience. In this lecture, she will show how the nature of human consciousness is key to this conversation and will discuss how neuroscience, philosophy, theology and medicine point to the reality that we are far more than simply our brains. This event is sponsored by Christian Medical and Dental Association.
