Who Do European Laws Think Human Beings Are?

Date recorded: 15 Sep 2014 | Speaker: David McIlroy | Event: ELF Politics and Society Network


The implicit philosophy underlying both the civil law and common law traditions in Europe is one which has been significantly influenced by Christianity’s understanding of human dignity and responsibility. Determinism denies human responsibility; naturalism tends to reduce human dignity. This talk explores how these currents in science are influencing laws and how Christians in science can respond.
