Embodied knowing: Science and technology in the 20th and 21st centuries

Anne Elvey, Kerrie Handasyde

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


This chapter explores the interaction of women and Christianity with science and technology in the period since 1920. In that time, the human population has quadrupled, with enormous implications for other species, and we have glimpsed other galaxies, split the atom, unravelled DNA, transformed communication and developed the means (unevenly distributed) to improve the quality of human life through science and technology. It is a broad topic that witnesses to seemingly ceaseless change over the last century, but it returns repeatedly to certain of Christianity’s constants: incarnation, justice, eschatology, the nature of being, healing, freedom and transcendence.
