Levi Checketts – Levi recently helped organized a “Religion and Science Intensive” course at the Jesuit School of Theology focusing on the significance of scientific developments in neuroscience, extended evolutionary synthesis, non-human psychology and transhumanism for theological understandings of the human person. The intensive invited six speakers whose work lies in this field to speak on the ways these sciences might impact theological belief.
This semester, Levi is teaching a master-level course at the GTU on theology and technology. It is a course examining the approaches theologians have taken to technology, the ways technologies have shaped branches of theology, and the ways current technologies are shaping current fields of theology (especially ethics, spirituality, eschatology and ecclesiology).
Levi also has a forthcoming article in Theology and Science arguing for the need for theologians engaging with technologies to use the tools STS has to offer. It is entitled “The Cross and the Computer: Actor-Network Theory and Christianity.” The DOI can be found at here.
