Through the 'Round Church Talks' we aim to provide a setting in which sceptics, agnostics, and believers can examine and explore Christian belief, its implications and its alternatives in the 21st century. Our goal is to give people the chance to reflect on the ‘big picture’ questions of life in a context which allows for robust, honest, critical and courteous discussion.

Persons and Naturalism: Are we just matter and does it matter?
Dr Jonathan Loose
Thursday 30 April, 5.45 - 7pm
Scientific knowledge about mind and brain has grown rapidly, but what does this mean for the traditional Christian view that persons consist of both bodies and souls? This talk will explore the Biblical basis for belief in some form of soul, and responses offered by Christian philosophers to the naturalistic claim that persons are entirely reducible to the functioning of physical objects.
Dr. Jonathan Loose is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy and Psychology at Heythrop College, University of London. Since 2010, his research has focused on interests in philosophy of religion and analytic theology. Current research projects include the nature of personhood, Christian materialism and the epistemological consequences of the cognitive science of religion
