Join Conversation Project at LOACC
At the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center, we regard technology as both wonderful and scary.
It's a topic we wish to explore so we are hosting an Oregon Humanities Conversation Project discussion titled "Is Technology Outpacing Our Humanity" to take place from 6-7:30 p.m. March 11 at the center.
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?
Oregon Humanities facilitator Manuel Padilla will lead this conversation to explore how technology shapes our moral reasoning and our perceptions of, and relationships with, one another.
The event is free, but we ask that people RSVP so we can plan seating. Call the center at 503-534-5748.
The lunch menu this week features shepherd's pie on Friday, Feb. 28; chicken fajitas on Monday, March 2 and pork tenderloin on Wednesday, March 4. Cost is a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and over and $5 for everyone else.
