    Frankensteins and Cyborgs: Visions of the Global Future in an Age of Technology
    Studies in Christian Ethics 16 (1): 29-43. 2003.
    This paper draws attention to the role of representation in the depiction of scientific and technological innovation as a means of understanding the narratives that circulate concerning the shape of things to come.

    with Paul K. Gorbow
    Review of Symbolic Logic 15 (4): 1033-1069. 2022.
    We develop an untyped framework for the multiverse of set theory.$\mathsf {ZF}$is extended with semantically motivated axioms utilizing the new symbols$\mathsf {Uni}(\mathcal {U})$and$\mathsf {Mod}(\mathcal {U, \sigma })$, expressing that$\mathcal {U}$is a universe and that$\sigma $is true in the universe$\mathcal {U}$, respectively. Here$\sigma $ranges over the augmented language, leading to liar-style phenomena that are analyzed. The framework is both compatible with a broad range of multivers…Read more

    Augsburg Fortress Publishing. 1996.
    This book examines the category of gender as it has been and is now understood in the social sciences and its pertinence for religion and theology.

  • Postmodernism and the Social Sciences
    with Joe Doherty and Mo Malek
    Palgrave-Macmillan. 1992.
    The social sciences are still predominantly modernist disciplines and, as such, products of the Enlightenment. Recent challenges to Enlightenment thinking thus carry with them the potential or threat to transform the social sciences radically. Postmodernism and the Social Sciences examines the nature and potential of this postmodernist challenge in each of the major social sciences. Starting with the practices of particular disciplines and proceeding to matters of shared concern, the essays prov…Read more
