Holy Sci-Fi!: Where Science Fiction and Religion Intersect (Science and Fiction)

Paul J. Nahin


Can a working laptop or computer have a soul? Are faith and technological know-how at the same time particular? Is there fairly this kind of factor as loose will? in the event you may possibly time shuttle to go to Jesus, might you (and may still you)? for centuries, philosophers, scientists and technological know-how fiction writers have meditated those questions and lots of more.

In Holy Sci-Fi!, renowned author Paul Nahin explores the fertile and occasionally uneasy dating among technological know-how fiction and faith. With a scope spanning the historical past of faith, philosophy and literature, Nahin follows spiritual topics in technology fiction from Feynman to Foucault and from Asimov to Aristotle.

An interesting trip via well known and well-loved books and tales, Holy Sci-Fi! indicates how sci-fi has knowledgeable humanity's attitudes in the direction of our faiths, our destiny and ourselves.
