Zygon: Journal of Religion and Science

Although this top-ranking journal’s main focus, according to its mission statement, is a new integration between “long-evolved religious wisdom” and modern science, the related question of technology is also one of its priorities. The journal’s website offers “Thematic Selections” (left-side menu) which include a number of links featuring prominent themes in the journal’s history. One of these links (“Techno-Secularity and Techno-Sapiens”) leads to a piece by the editor-in-chief, first discussing the journal’s engagement with the question of “religion in an age of technology”, and then followed by a long bibliography.
