In her latest book, scientist and theologian Ilia Delio takes up the challenge of reconciling evolution and religion with particular attention to the role of Artificial Intelligence. She argues that AI represents the latest extension of human evolution, which has implications not only for science but also for religion. 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.
