Chris Bradford at Sunstone Symposium


Chris Bradford, Vice President of the Mormon Transhumanist Association, will speak at the Sunstone Symposium at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City on Saturday 3 August at 9:45am. Chris will present his paper, "Bodies without End," drawing on the work of James Faulconer and David Paulsen, dealing with Mormon conceptions of embodiment — both human and divine — and on the work of Antonio d’Amasio and Douglas Hofstadter, dealing with identity, embodiment, and emotion, to propose a model of embodiment that fits Joseph Smith’s teachings on spirit bodies, physical bodies, resurrected bodies, and God’s body. More information is available in the conference program and on the Sunstone website.
