Description - Living with the Genie by Alan Lightman

Biotechnology, Cloning, Robotics, Nanotechnology...Through our technologies, we have sought to free ourselves from the shackles of nature and become its master. Yet science and technology continually transform our experience and society in ways that often seem to be beyond control. Today different areas of research and innovation are advancing synergistically and multiplying the rate and magnitude of technological change with consequences that no one can predict. Living with the Genie explores the origins, nature, and meaning of such change and our capacity to govern it. As the power of technology continues to accelerate, who, this book asks, will be the master of whom?
