Human Uniqueness and Technology: Are We Co-Creators with God?

Every now and then, Google Scholar (and other research sites) send an email to say someone’s referenced my PhD thesis in a publication. It’s a good way to keep track of other researchers who are also interested in theology, technology and transhumanism, as well as who is using the thesis.

The most recent of these references is this recent essay in an upcoming book:

  • Lorrimar, Victoria. “Human Uniqueness and Technology: Are We Co-Creators with God?” In Issues in Science and Theology: Are We Special?, edited by Michael Fuller, Dirk Evers, Anne L.C. Runehov and Knut-Willy Saether, 169-180. Cham: Springer 2017.

I’m looking forward to reading the whole essay (rather than just the snippets on Google Books) later in the year.

I’ve found that series of books – Issues in Science and Theology helpful for my own research in the past, including when writing the PhD when I used this one:

The books are part of a series produced by the European Society for the Study of Science and Theology.


The PhD thesis – Transhumanism and the Imago Dei: Narratives of Apprehension and Hope – can be found here at the University of Auckland research archive.
