About this book

As technologies converge and - more importantly - as we converge with our technologies, human life will be confronted with the greatest challenges and opportunities yet in its evolutionary history. The author tackles head-on this conundrum, and reveals the awesome potential for the human species and its various technologies - genetic research, environmental management, industrial processes, and the information network - as well as exploring the accompanying ethical questions.
