Being Human: Bodies, Minds, Persons



What is human consciousness? Is the mind a machine? What makes us persons? How can we find the path to human maturity?

These are among the fundamental questions that former Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, helps us to think about in 'Being Human'. This deeply engaging book is an exploration of what it means to be human and the examination of human consciousness from a Christian perspective.

'Being Human' ends with a brief but profound meditation on the person of Christ, where Rowan Williams invites us to consider how, through Christ, 'our humanity in all its variety, in all its vulnerability, has been taken into the heart of the divine life'. This book by Rowan Williams sparks interesting discussion on human consciousness and a balanced examination of human nature whilst touching on Christian theological philosophy. Like previous books by the former Archbishop of Canterbury, 'Being Human' is concisely written and thought-provoking. Readers will find the reflection and critique on consciousness illuminating.

Although aimed at Christians, with discussion questions for personal or group use at the end of each chapter, 'Being Human' is a book that readers of all religious persuasions will find both challenging and highly rewarding.
