Last Flesh is about human transformation. It proposes that we are on the brink of the transhuman age an era that will usher in the next stage in human evolution, the posthuman era. Last Flesh is a personal, Renaissance look at this transitional period, its culture, media and technology.
The transhuman epoch will be heralded by an unprecedented expansion of human capabilities. Genetic engineering, cyberneurology and artificial intelligence are about to give humans the keys to their own destiny. Voice-recognition, computer-assisted literature and art will provide a new cultural richness. At the same time nanotechnology, robotics and physics will produce astounding new advances in engineering. Last Flesh explores the impact, both social and moral of these innovations: -- Why the increasing pace of technological obsolescence is good for us-- Why our present concept of privacy must end if we are to flourish in the posthuman era-- How the Internet is really the last flowering of private literature before the advent of voice recognition-- How human consciousness will be "uploaded" into computers
An eclectic, free-ranging and yet completely accessible interpretation of where we are and where we are going as a species, Last Flesh is both energizing and foreboding, a brilliant melange of culture and technology that will dazzle and disturb.
