Re-Enchanting the Earth: Why AI Needs Religion
In this bold new work, scientist and theologian Ilia Delio takes up the challenge of devising a rapprochement between science and religion, with particular attention to the role of Artificial Intelligence, or AI. If the “first axial age” gave rise to the great religions, she sees us now on the cusp of a “second axial age,” in which AI, oriented by new religious sensibilities, can bring about an ecological re-enchantment of the earth.
“A book of great clarity and bold challenges. Ilia Delio shows us how cosmic, human, and technological evolution are moving to ever greater complexity and consciousness, inviting a new understanding of personhood by ‘thinking ourselves anew.’ Highly recommended.” –Ursula King, author, Spirt of Fire: The Life and Vision of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
