The Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics (CILE), a member of College of Islamic Studies (CIS) in Hamad Bin Khalifa University cordially invites you to its upcoming public lecture entitled: “What is Human Nature? Ethical Reflections on Human Genes and the Soul”.
This event will be held on April 4th, 2017 from 7 to 9 pm in QFIS Auditorium, Education City in Doha (Qatar).
What role do our genes, and the whole genome in general, play in our material and non-material makeup as humans? What can these genes do and what can they not do? Do they have anything to do with our spirituality and ethical behavior? Is there really such a thing as a “God Gene”, a hypothesis postulated by the American geneticist, Dean Hamer?
