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.

New book: The Ethics of Nature and the Nature of Ethics

Former LTI colleague Gary Keogh has edited a book, The Ethics of Nature and the Nature of Ethics, which has been published by Rowman & Littlefield

The book is the product of conversations that emerged from an LTI conference of the same name, which was held in May 2015 at the University of Manchester.

Featuring contributions from Prof Alison Stone (Lancaster), former LTI postdoc Dr Ben Wood (Leeds Trinity), current LTI postdoc Dr Scott Midson (Manchester) and others, this volume seeks to explore and examine nature in its multiple senses through its ethical implications. This is a bold and interdisciplinary offering to the complex debates about our understandings of and relationships to nature.

Available on Amazon.
