Technology, Medical Care and Human Dignity The Issachar Fund develops, supports and runs programs exploring the theological and ethical tensions that emerge in the context of rapid change in technology and in medical care. Modern technology and modern health care are about overcoming limits. Both promise unlimited mastery and abundance, and both presuppose certain values and promote certain ways of thinking. It's no surprise that many people have an attitude of deep reverence for technical, medical and scientific authorities. We often embrace the latest advancements as unblemished goods for humanity and creation. New discoveries accompanied by such adulation have the potential to alter the very nature of both our personal lives and our social relationships. This raises important questions for families, communities and societies around the world about human dignity, human personhood and human flourishing.
