  1. Hava Tirosh-Samuelson (2012). Transhumanism as a Secularist Faith. Zygon 47 (4):710-734.
    In the second half of the twentieth century, humanism— namely, the worldview that underpinned Western thought for several centuries—has been severely critiqued by philosophers who highlighted its theoretical and ethical limitations. Inspired by the emergence of cybernetics and new technologies such as robotics, prosthetics, communications, artificial intelligence, genetic engineering, and nanotechnology, there has been a desire to articulate a new worldview that will fit the posthuman condition. Posthumanism is a description of a new form of human existence in which the (...)

  2. Hava Tirosh-Samuelson (2010). History and the Future of Science and Religion. Zygon 45 (2):448-461.

  4. Hava Tirosh-Samuelson (2005). Rethinking the Past and Anticipating the Future of Religion and Science. Zygon 40 (1):33-41.
    . John Caiazza presents the current technoculture as the latest development in the ongoing conflict of science and religion that began with Tertullian in the third century. I argue that his presentation is historically inaccurate, because for most of Western history science and religion interacted with and cross‐fertilized each other. Contrary to Caiazza's misleading presentation, Western thought did not follow the dichotomous model polemically posed by Tertullian. I take issue with Caiazza's portrayal of postmodernism and his claim that technology is (...)
