Through close analysis of the historical and conceptual roots of modern science and technology, Brian Brock here develops a theological ethic addressing a wide range of contemporary perplexities about the moral challenges raised by new technology.
^^Part I lays the groundwork for theological analysis by tracing "secular" philosophical accounts of modern technology's shape, origins, meanings, and ethical implications, looking specifically at Martin Heidegger and two of his interpreters, George Grant and Michael Foucault.


Part II develops an account of faith's seeking to hear the claim of Christ amid technological life. Viewing technology as a human mode of thought that comes to approach all things and relationships as susceptible to human ordering and management, Brock explores how faith opens up trajectories for new ways of living with others elided by technological rationality.
