Parallels and Convergences: Mormon Thought and Engineering Vision

Postby Lincoln Cannon-p40 » Mon Sep 01, 2008 10:16 am

The Howard W. Hunter Chair of Mormon Studies in the School of Religion at Claremont Graduate University is pleased to sponsor a conference on:

Parallels and Convergences: Mormon Thought and Engineering Vision

Location:

Claremont Graduate University, 150 E. 10th Street, Claremont, CA 91711

Important Dates:

Abstract deadline: 2008 December 1 (extended abstract)
Conference: 2009 March 7 (Saturday)

The Howard W Hunter Chair is interesting in expanding the discussion of Latter-day Saint (LDS) perspectives on the attributes of God and the potential of man through a variety of innovative directions. One of the directions to be explored is whether there is a possible resonance between Mormon and engineering thought. The assumption is that according to LDS understanding, God is the architect of the Creation and the engineer of our bodies and spirits. Man, on the other hand, is believed to be capable of growing to become like God. The theological question is: where does engineering fit in the convergence of these two realms?

This conference is being organized under the direction of Howard W. Hunter Chair of Mormon Studies.
