What does it mean to exist in complex relationships with machines? What insights can be offered to our understandings of these relationships by the theologically significant theme of ‘love’? What critical assessments can be made of our multiple uses of technologies in shaping our futures, by reflecting on our pasts?

Disquiet over the prevalence of social and economic individualism has a long history. In a world of mobile Capital and increasingly mobile people, communities of common tradition and locality appear to be under threat from the advent of a fragmented market society. Are these complaints against individualism justified? And crucially, how should Christians respond to them? Digging down into the substance of these questions, this project will consider the theological, liturgical and scriptural resources Christians have for understanding the notion of individualism in relation to issues of education, public life and the formation of democratic citizenship.

LTI Newsletter Summer 2009

From the Director, Peter M. Scott: Welcome to the Summer 2009 issue of the Institute’s newsletter, with its reports on LTI’s activities over the last year. It has been another frenetic year at the Institute, with some projects coming to a conclusion and new projects beginning. Elsewhere in this newsletter, you will find reports on the three LTI projects that are currently underway: the first phase of the Future Ethics has been completed and the second phase is now beginning. A new project, Belonging & Heimat, led by the Institute’s new honorary research fellow John Rodwell, has begun. And the head of steam in the third project, Divinity after Empire, continues to build as the project attracts additional partners. A number of publications by members of the Institute have also appeared; please click here to download the rest of the newsletter.
