Humanity's Future examines the psychological and social impact of likely future events related to advanced technology. Will humanity feel useless in a future where most tasks are automated and robots do all the work? Will society experience alienation and angst, collapsing into a state of decadence and corruption? How might we improve ourselves, as technology advances in unprecedented ways? Who gets to decide? Can we advance civilization and eliminate genocide and war? Philosophical, scientific and pragmatic issues interwine complexly here, and uncertainties abound, but Dr. Friedenberg unravels the various possiblities with a masterful clarity.
