The concept of human personhood is central to theology and philosophy. It has also become crucial in interdisciplinary fields like bio-ethics and theology and science.
In this book leading European and American scholars explore the dimensions of personhood from scientific and theological perspectives. Contributors include Mary Midgely, Fraser Watts, Philip Hefner, Michael Welker, Dennis Bielfeldt and John A. Teske. This is an important collection and shows the extent to which the current dialogue between science and theology is no longer confined to discussing the relation of theology with physics and biology, but also with neuroscience, psychology and sociology.
