The 2016 Warrawee Lecture was given by Dr Brian Rosner, principal of Ridley College, Melbourne.
What is a human being? Personal identity and the Bible. Brian writes:
“the world is obsessed with being true to yourself and knowing who you are; there’s never been a time when knowing who you are has been so difficult. If traditional societies are like rivers, buoying their members in one particular direction, modern societies are oceans – you can go in any direction you wish. But what is personal identity? Do my job, my possessions, my experiences, my memories, define who I am? What is a human being?”
