Not what it says on the lid.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Humanity 2.0: What it Means to be Human Past, Present and Future (Kindle Edition)
I don't often write reviews, usually only if I'm pleasantly surprised or utterly disapponted by something I've purchased from Amazon.
Unfortunately, this case falls into the latter catagory.
Cute cover, sexy title.
However, the book itself does very little to discuss the subject of humanity's next techno-enhanced incarnation, its effects upon society and the ethical problems such a sea-change would bring. Which is a pity.
What it does do, at great and witheringly detailed length, is provide a history of sociology's past and present, which is I suppose, useful, and make rather incoherrent arguements concerning science and Abrahamic religion, which, at least in my opinion, is not.
There are better books if you want to read about evolution vs. intelligent design, and better books if you want to read about a possible reapproachment of science by theism.
Not very good. Sorry.
