Transdisciplinary approaches of the dialogue between science, art, and religion in the Europe of tomorrow
A survey of recent science-fiction would show that the theme of this paper -artificial minds and human religions -is one that is of significant interest in our time... Furthermore, science-fiction provides an opportunity to explore future possibilities, and exploring where technology might take us and how religious traditions might respond seems more advisable than waiting until developments actually occur, and then scrambling to respond.
