Technology, Trust, and Religion
Roles of Religions in Controversies over Ecology and the Modification of Life
Distributed for Amsterdam University Press
What does it mean to be human in a world of technology? What could be the role of religion in responding to the ecological crisis? Whom do we trust to make decisions regarding our common future? Is the public ignorant, in the eyes of our scientific experts? The contributors to this timely volume address issues of expertise, trust, and engagement in light of ecological and spiritual concerns, including our increasing technological awareness, religious resources for ecological crises, biotechnology, and matters of trust between scientists and the general public.
