Scientia et Fides

“Scientia et Fides” (SetF) is an open access online journal published twice a year. It is promoted by the Faculty of Theology of Nicolaus Copernicus University, in Torun, in collaboration with the Group of Research “Science, Reason, and Faith” (CRYF), at University of Navarra.

SetF aims to present rigorous research works regarding different aspects of the relationship between science and religion. For this reason, SetF articles are not confined to the methodology of a single discipline and may cover a wide range of topics, provided that the interdisciplinary dialogue between science and religion is tackled. The Journal accepts articles written in English, Spanish, Polish, French, Italian and German, which will be evaluated by a peer-review process.

Call for Paper: Transhumanism

The Journal Scientia et Fides (ISSN: 2300-7648; E-ISSN: 2353-5636) is currently running a Special Issue entitled “Transhumanism”, edited by Prof. Leandro M. Gaitán (Mind-Brain Research Group; Science, Faith and Reason Research Group; School of Education and Psychology ‒ Universidad de Navarra):

During the last two decades, the transhumanist metanarrative has been generating a lot of controversy, both in academic circles and in public opinion. Its proposal of a radical transformation, and even of overcoming the human condition by technological means, entails a diversity of both theoretical and practical problems.

From the theoretical perspective, some problems are the potential advantages and risks of transhumanism, personal identity, new alterities (robots, cyborgs, etc.), equality and social justice in a posthuman future, human/posthuman evolution, nature and nurture in transhumanism, history of transhumanism, literature and transhumanism, death and immortality, religion and transhumanism, and the meaning of life in a posthuman world.

From the practical perspective, some problems are hybridization human-machine, ethics of physical, cognitive, and moral enhancement, defense/security, AI and enhancement, sports and enhancement, and cryonics and mind uploading. The great interest aroused by transhumanism can be observed in the growing number of publications, conferences and workshops that have been dedicated to it.

Following this line, Scientia et Fides welcomes submissions of articles concerning to the abovementioned topics (but not limited to).

Papers are accepted in the following languages: English, Spanish, Polish, German, French, Italian, and Portuguese; and should be submitted, after registration, to Scientia et Fides:
