Description: 

What does technology have to do with theology? Technological developments have challenged our views about what it means to be real, to be good, and even to be human - all prime theological ground. Today we do not simply live with technology, we live 'in' it. While society wrestles with the ethical implications of particular technologies, Christian philosophers, social critics , and theologians have taken a leading role in discussions about the nature of technology itself. They have expanded our idea of what technology is and how it shapes our daily lives and our future. In this course we will survey some of their most important theologically informed ideas. We will also apply them critically to our technological society, which the church itself both inhabits and seeks to engage.
