Christianity and Transhumanism – A perspective

It’s been a while since anything related to religion and transhumanism passed across my radar (or I’ve been working on other things and just haven’t been paying attention). However, here’s a recent interview on Changesurfer Radio where James Hughes interviews Brent Waters about his slant on Christianity and Transhumanism. See: Do Christians Need Bodies?.

Hat tip to io9 : How should Christians feel about Transhumanism?

And here’s a list of related books by the conversation partners.

"This Mortal Flesh: Incarnation and Bioethics" (Brent Waters)

"From Human to Posthuman: Christian Theology And Technology in a Postmodern World (Ashgate Science and Religion Series)" (Brent Waters)

"Citizen Cyborg: Why Democratic Societies Must Respond To The Redesigned Human Of The Future" (James Hughes)

Waters also has an essay “Whose Salvation? Which Eschatology ? Transhumanism and Christianity as Competing Salvific Religions” in

"Transhumanism and Transcendence: Christian Hope in an Age of Technological Enhancement" (Georgetown University Press)
