Cyborg Theology: Humans, Technology and God [9781784537876]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
In particular, Donna Haraway argued in her famous 1991 'Cyborg Manifesto' that people, since they are so often now detached and separated from nature, have themselves evolved into cyborgs. This striking idea has had considerable influence within critical theory, cultural studies and even science fiction (where it has surfaced, for example, in the Terminator films and in the Borg of the Star Trek franchise). But it is a notion that has had much less currency in theology. In his innovative new book, Scott Midson boldly argues that the deeper nuances of Haraway's and the cyborg idea can similarly rejuvenate theology, mythology and anthropology. Challenging the damaging anthropocentrism directed towards nature and the non-human in our society, the author reveals - through an imaginative reading of the myth of Eden - how it is now possible for humanity to be at one with the natural world even as it vigorously pursues novel, 'post-human', technologies.
AUTHOR: Scott A Midson is Samuel Ferguson Research Assistant in the Department of Religions and Theology at the University of Manchester, where he obtained his PhD in 2012. Specializing in religion and technology and religion and new media, he is a member of the Society for the Study of Theology, where he delivered a paper in 2016 on the topic of 'Black Mirrors.' Cyborg Theology is his first book.
