Description

Are machines taking over? Is evolution out of control? Is there a future for the human condition? These questions are at the heart of this book. How can philosophy respond to the new age where what we create - machines and technology - has fundamental implications on what we are now, and what we are to become. The way we think needs new models and new maps to cope with these changes. This study brings together the tradition of continental thought with developments in science, technology and new work in exploratory biology. In a number of original and experimental pieces, Keith Ansell Pearson looks at technology and the transhuman condition; mapping inhuman futures and the construction of universal history; Nietzsche and the Darwin machine; entropy and evolution; and the undecidability of machinic enslavement.
