Soul in Cyberspace

Format: Digital
, 1997


While many Christians are content with a superficial and pragmatic assessment of the new information technologies, Dr. Groothuis probes more deeply. He wisely recognizes the symbolic power of technology: machines don't just do things, they shape us by equipping our imaginations and language with powerful new images, metaphors, and assumptions. Topics addressed include disembodied existence in a digital world, the future of the book, cybersex, technoshamanism, and others.
