Will a particular form of religion dominate the world in this century? Watch
Is science capable of providing a common morality? Watch
Is materialism the best explanation for reality? Watch
Dr David Pullinger
Dr David Pullinger, a previous Director of the SRT Project, now works for the UK Government in setting policies and standards for the use of digital media by the public sector. He continues the academic career he began earlier through writing papers, particularly on IT and ethics, and in participation as a visiting professor at universities. Between working at the Church of Scotland and becoming a civil servant, he led the introduction of digital into blue chip commercial publishing companies (winning international awards for thought leadership), conceived and initiated the means by which all academic articles link to each other, led some major international research projects, and wrote an introductory book on Internet ethics. His primary interest is the design interplay between technical opportunities and what people do and how they think about what they do, and reflecting on the associated spiritual and ethical aspects.
