Braden R. Allenby, Daniel Sarewitz, -The Techno-Human Condition-

English | ISBN: 0262015692 | 2011 | 240 pages | PDF | 2,4 MB

-An important, provocative, and wide-ranging volume on the role of technology in our rapidly changing Anthropocene-era world. Essential reading for anyone interested in Methods to Shape the Future, World Futures, Security, Sustainability, and science/technology in general... a stimulating and timely book.-- Michael Marien, Global Foresight Books

-A smart, articulate, and even witty investigation that avoids derailing into either the utopian or the dystopian. If the best is enemy of the good, The Techno-Human Condition is the good at its best.- Richard Rhodes , author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book The Making of the Atomic Bomb

-The Techno-Human Condition is first a cogent description of modernity from the perspective of a technological worldview and second a prescription for our problems through a rejuvenation of key Enlightenment precepts. The authors have clearly outlined how and why we are facing a fundamental cultural crisis precipitated by 'wicked complexity,' and this book is a clarion call for radical adjustment. I predict it will become a touchstone for reorienting our thinking about techno-society and the need to reconsider how global problems are faced by industrial societies.- Alfred I. Tauber , Professor of Philosophy and Zoltan Kohn Professor of Medicine, Boston University

A provocative analysis of what it means to be human in an era of incomprehensible technological complexity and change.
