n

This lecture takes its cue from Jeffery Bishop's The Anticipatory Corpse: Medicine, Power, and the Care of the Dying (Notre Dame, 2011), which concluded with the question: 'Might it not be that only theology can save medicine?' Accordingly, the lecture responds to this question, in part, and serves as an invitation to those engaged in the practice of medicine to respond to the presence of the human body.

n

This invitation goads us to attend to the theological significance of the human body. Dr. Moyse will resource such concern with his reading of Swiss Reformed theologian Karl Barth's relational anthropology, in which we discover a particular responsibility toward the body and soul of the Other. Subsequently, Dr. Moyse will propose that a complementary anthropology might benefit medicine.

n

Yet the aim is not to pursue a theological intervention that colonizes medicine. Rather, the aim here is to proclaim the theological such that the physician, for example, might learn to encounter her patient in the fullness of his being and by a posture of responsibility grounded by love.

Ashley joins Regent College as Post-Doctoral Fellow in Theology and Science, a position funded by a generous grant from the John Templeton Foundation. In addition to his role at Regent he also holds honorary research appointments at Vancouver School of Theology and the University of Divinity (Melbourne). With training in both the applied human sciences and in constructive and moral theology, he is interested in exploring the implications of theology for the human and natural sciences, technology, and medical humanities. Specifically in relation to the postdoctoral fellowship, he anticipates several opportunities to explore research outcomes that might theorize the mutual coinherence of theology and science. Indeed, to use a phrase from Charles Williams' Descent of the Dove (1939), this fellowship will allow him to u2018mediate and practice' coinherence for both the church and the world as he labours to probe and to preserve the relationship between theology, science, and technology.
