About Fr. Philip Larrey

Fr. Philip Larrey, PhD, is a Catholic priest who holds the Chair of Logic and Epistemology at the Pontifical Lateran University in the Vatican and is the Dean of the Philosophy Department. His publications deal with the philosophy of knowledge and critical thinking. He has published several books concerning the effects of the new digital era on society. Two of his recent works highlight this theme: Connected World (Penguin) and Artificial Humanity (IF Press). The Italian translation of the former was published by Mondadori in 2018 entitled, Dove inizia il futuro.

For years he has been following the philosophical implications of the rapid development of artificial intelligence. With candor, he challenges industry leaders he comes into contact with at the Vatican to discuss how technology is shaping the fabric of our society.
