God and the Chip: Religion and the Culture of Technology

Synopsis

Winner of the 1999 Scholarly Writing Award presented to a Saskatchewan author for the best contribution to scholarship. Our ancestors saw the material world as alive, and they often personified nature. Today we claim to be realists. But in reality we are not paying attention to the symbols and myths hidden in technology. Beneath much of our talk about computers and the Internet, claims William A. Stahl, is an unacknowledged mysticism, an implicit religion. By not acknowledging this mysticism, we have become critically short of ethical and intellectual resources with which to understand and confront changes brought on by technology.
