Customer Review

21 October 2017
This is an important book, deserving of a wide readership. A passionate, personal manifesto. A powerful and compelling rallying cry for "Team Human". I had the pleasure of experiencing Gerd live at an event in London a few weeks ago, and was looking forward to seeing the argument laid out in more depth. Like most of us, my knowledge and understanding of the challenges ahead - in AI and machine-learning, in biotech, in bio- and geoengineering etc - is limited, if growing. Technology vs Humanity asks lots of questions and provides few answers. But that is the point: we are at the stage where the right questions need to be formulated. Answers, then, need to be found in open and transparent (ideally!) civic discourse. Aristotle, Heidegger, Frankl and others serve to make the case for an ethical framework to guide the decisions that need to be made, so technology will serve human happiness - not of the superficial hedonistic sort, but eudaemonia: a more profound, deeper happiness. So: read the book, and joint Team Human in its effort to shape a desirable future.
