Cybernauts Awake! Summary


Cybernauts Awake!: Ethical and Spiritual Implications of Computers, Information Technology and the Internet by Church of England Board for Social Responsibility

The impact of information technology and the Internet upon society has increased rapidly in recent years to become the focus of much media attention, largely from a secular perspective. Cybernauts Awake! seeks to explore the profound and fascinating questions raised by the new technology from within a Christian context. What does space mean in cyberspace? Can intimacy be divorced from the physical world? What is a person if a computer can be made to behave just like one? Could cyberspace lead to a blurring of the distinction between truth and fiction by encouraging individuals to retreat into a fantasy world? . . . Cybernauts Awake! explains what cyberspace is and what we can do in it, and explores the dreams and dangers at the heart of the digital age. It is an essential read for all those who wish to learn how to use cyberspace wisely and well, according to Christian principles. Contributors include: Professor Derek Burke (Chairman), former Vice-Chancellor of UEA Christine Crosbie (Secretary) Mr Nicholas Beale, member of the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists Ms Theresa Byrne, Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales Dr Dave Leal, Lecturer in Philosophy & Moral Theology, Regent's Park College, University of Oxford Professor Simon Peyton-Jones, former Professor of Computing Science, University of Glasgow Professor John Pickering, Professor of Economics Professor David Pullinger, former Electronic Publications Manager of Nature Professor Harold Thimbleby, Director of Research, School of Computing Science, Middlesex University
