A disappointing and "human, all too human" discusson of a possible posthuman evolution
il 21 luglio 2015
Even though the subject appears to have been extensively researched and thought out, and in spite of the occasional spark of brilliancy, I found the book essentially naive from a philosophical point of view. While the narrative espoused by the author can easily be deconstrued as the umpteenth recapitulation of the Golem mythology under a thin secular veneer, the underlying choice of values is largely implicit, acritical and taken for granted, and at least in part is likely to be found repulsive by anybody with a posthumanist, Futurist or Nietzschean mindset. All in all, this book probably epitomises the final departure of Nick Bostrom from the transhumanist camp.
