Description: "With this book Szerszynski makes a highly original contribution to European social theory of the politics of nature and reflexive modernization. Paddling hard against the main currents of thought in this area, he doggedly follows his hunch - that the contemporary politicization of nature and technology is by no means a sign of our final departure from the horizon of religion and the sacred. The scholarly yet engaging way in which he develops his case will mean that this book will become an obligatory reference point for those wishing to locate the contemporary debates about how we should live with technology and nature within the longer scope of Western history." Ulrich Beck, Ludwig-Maximilian University, Munich "Szerszynski's meticulously researched and well-argued book comprehensively demolishes the notion that monotheism disenchanted the natural world ... This book will stand for many years to come as the authoritative treatment of a topic which in turn stands at the very centre of the entire ecological debate." John Milbank, University of Nottingham "Szerszynski draws on several centuries of Western religious and philosophical thought to rebut the idea that modernity's love affair with technology has taken the sacred out of nature. His provocative, wide-ranging study will broaden the horizons of environmental scholarship as well as science and technology studies." Sheila Jasanoff, Harvard University "In this impressive, wide-ranging new volume, Bronislaw Szerszynski provides a sophisticated historic overview of the development of technology from ancient times to the present. [...] This book is a highly refined and intelligent work and whether its conclusions are met with enthusiasm or sceptical disagreement, it demands and deserves significant attention." Journal of Contemporary Religion " Nature, Technology and the Sacred takes our ability to study implicit religion to a new and deeper level ... We can only anticipate that much more will come from this formidable scholar." Implicit Religion
