Richard David  Precht - Artificial Intelligence and the Meaning of Life


"Written with his heart on the page […], this book is a passionate plea for a change of mentality, a different culture in treating the earth."

Badische Zeitung

"How happy does technological progress make us and where does it lead? If you search for smart thoughts and answers, Precht is the right author."

Die Zeit

"Readers wish for such a clever essay as this one to critically understand KI and much of this digital madness with their own natural intelligence."

Der Tagesspiegel

"Precht, the jack-of-all-trades among German intellectuals, […] deconstructs the current socially dominant belief that there is no alternative to total digital transformation."


"An important, yet also difficult contribution."


"[Precht] skillfully places the transformative longing of humans in the context of their contemporary historical reality."


"Precht succeeds in taking on current topics by approaching them from a philosophical and scientific perspective and, as always, creates a very interesting book."
