Lars  Jaeger - Superpower Science


Hi-tech – curse or blessing?

Meat from 3-D printers, robots as small as viruses, artificially produced life – so far, human beings have been shaping nature as they want. Modern technologies, however, can make things go the other way: shaping human beings. Algorithms that decide over life and death; tampering with genetics and artificial intelligence are all redefining human life. Our daily lives, our human existence are radically changing. The question is: do we want this epochal change?

Only if we understand what is going on around us and to us can we claim to be mature, responsible citizens. A memorable and elucidating book that helps us get our bearings: coherent, disturbing, thought-provoking.

"If you want to understand the present, you have to know the way science has prepared for it. This narrative book will effortlessly help you." Ernst Peter Fischer, Prof. em., Heidelberg
