520 |a 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? Should we be concerned about the modification of food, and even of ourselves? Who do we trust to make decisions regarding our common future? What do we use our technology for? These are not questions for experts only. How can the wider public be involved? Do experts and the general public trust each other sufficiently? Or is the public ignorant, in the eyes of the scientists? And are too many engineers narrow minded, according to the general public? The contributors to this timely and necessary volume address expertise, trust and engagement, as we consider our technological condition , religious resources for the ecological crisis , biotechnology , and matters of trust between scientists and the general public. With contributions from leading scholars in the field, including James Miller from Queen's University, Canada and Tony Watling from the University College, London, this book will captivate a range of readers interested in the spirtitual dimension of of our culture and society. 
520 |a Wat is de invloed van technologie op de menselijke cultuur? Welke rol kan religie spelen als reactie op de dreigende ecologische crisis? Moeten we ons zorgen maken over de modificatie van voedsel, en ook zelfs van de mens? Waar willen we technologische ontwikkelingen voor inzetten een aan wie vertrouwen wij beslissingen over onze toekomst toe? Dergelijke vragen gaan niet alleen de experts maar iedereen aan. Hoe kan het grote publiek deelnemen aan het technologische debat? Of is het publiek te onwetend om mee kunnen praten? In Technology, Trust and Religion gaan zestien wetenschappers op dit onderwerp in en worden deskundigheid, vertrouwen en betrokkenheid tegen het licht gehouden.
