Young people need education to prepare them to thrive in the real world.

Our Fully Human research initiative explores how we do that, bringing fresh perspectives on the future of education by asking fundamental questions:

  • What does it mean to be human?
  • How is tech­nol­o­gy chal­leng­ing the human experience?
  • How can edu­ca­tion sup­port young peo­ple to live an autonomous and ful­ly human life in the face of these challenges?

Issue #1: Pornography and human futures

The first issue of Fully Human, Pornography and Human Futures, brings together research on
porn with wide-ranging literatures on core elements of human flourishing to answer some critical questions:

  • What is pornography in this age of ever-present technology?
  • How does it work and what does it do?
  • What does it mean for our hopes for young people?
  • How does it affect our potential for what we might call a ‘fully human’ existence?

The insights, findings and arguments this study lays out have profound implications for how we approach pornography, both individually and collectively. They also inform our thinking about other pressing societal concerns and focus our attention on our deepest aspirations for young people.
