Abstract and Keywords

This chapter addresses the question of what theologians can contribute to debates about technology. It argues that modern theology provides a distinctive contribution to understanding technology, not least because theology, like technology is concerned with the future. The chapter further argues that the newly formed paths within the philosophy of technology have generally failed to engage with the theological tradition due to the ecological, social, and existential crises of the technological age.

Keywords: theology, technology, philosophy, existential crises
