is a collection of views from scholars and practitioners that dwell on the topics of technology, interculturalism, religion, development and health-related studies. The collection is compiled in two parts: Part One focuses on six empirical studies loosely related to the broad theme of the book, and Part Two includes four theoretical reflections on 'intercultural development'. The aim of the book is to explore and comment on the role of cultures and worldviews in the development of technology. The common point of departure (or more academically stated, the interdisciplinary conceptual framework) for the authors is how they view technology, which is, simply put, that technological advancements should serve the common good of all people and cultures.
