Ethics in an Age of Technology 1989–1990

Ian G. Barbour

Summary

Table of Contents

Abstract

Barbour attempts to ‘present an interpretation of Christianity that is responsive both to the historical tradition and to contemporary science’. The first volume (Religion in an Age of Science) explores the impact of science and its challenges to religious life, asking and answering questions surrounding the compatibility of science and religion and the impact of science on human nature. The second volume (Ethics in an Age of Technology) explores the ethical implications of technological and applied-scientific advancements, reflecting on the value of these achievements in relation to such concerns as environmental and human costs, and projecting possible future directions of control relative to human values.
