We currently live in a high-tech society where portable supercomputers, artificial intelligence, genetic enhancement, etc., are becoming part of our daily life.

Sánchez-Tabernero, Alfonso; Torralba, José M. – International Studies in Catholic Education, 2018
This article describes the way in which the Catholic faith shapes education at the University of Navarra.
