Spring Meeting on Paul’s Brain Science of Emotions @ Santa Rosa, CA, and Online
Mar 21 all-day

Paul’s Brain Science of Emotions

Westar Scholar and Author, Thandeka, talks about her upcoming sessions at the Spring Meeting on Paul’s Brain Science of Emotions:

The apostle Paul addressed the nations of ancient Rome with the rhetoric of the “law of Christ”(Gal 6:2) and the “spirit of the law” (Rom 8:2). He tried but failed to teach them selfless love as the emotional foundation for faithfulness to God. Did he know what he was talking about?

According to Thandeka, modern science may reveal things that Paul understood at an instinctive level—things that we can see now with much greater clarity. Using the tools of affective neuroscience, she will examine Paul’s first-century attempt to teach selfless love, demonstrating how this love relates to human psychology, and asking if selfless love is the true value and future of religion.
