Towards a Christian Theory of Technological Things

Lambert Van Poolen

A Christian theory of the technological thing, a bridge for example, posits it as a relational quasi-object fully physical and fully cultural, a hermeneutical text that can be read for meaning, and a localized logos—a unified but limited word or guide to locate meaning. The motivation for theorizing about technological things this way is the relational structure of the divine/human Word, the Logos. Lambert Van Poolen is a recently retired Professor of Engineering at Calvin College. Mr. Van Poolen currently is an engineering consultant in the automotive industry.
