From Human to Posthuman : Christian Theology and Technology in a Postmodern World, Hardback Book

From Human to Posthuman : Christian Theology and Technology in a Postmodern World Hardback

Part of the Routledge Science and Religion Series series

Description

Technology is one of the dominant forces shaping the emerging postmodern world.

Indeed the very fabric of daily life is dependent upon various information, communication, and transportation technologies.

With anticipated advances in biotechnology, artificial intelligence, and robotics, that dependence will increase.

Yet this growing dependence is accompanied with a deep ambivalence. For many technology symbolises the faith of the postmodern world, but it is an ambivalent faith encapsulating both our hopes and fears for the future.

This book examines the religious foundations underlying this troubled faith in technology, as well as critically and constructively engaging particular technological developments from a theological perspective.
