Gregory Stock - How Biotech Will Drive Our Evolution

Streaming Video - 2012
Rate this:
Bestselling author and lecturer Gregory Stock examines the evolutionary significance of technological progress. His book Metaman looks (optimistically) toward a future where the symbiotic relationship between human culture and technology increasingly resembles a "superorganism" that can respond, as a whole, to crises like global warming. In his Redesigning Humans he poses the alluring - and sometimes frightening - possibility that human biology will soon become customizable. In this prophetic TEDTalk, ethicist Stock looks forward to new, more meaningful and controversial technologies, like customizable babies, whose adoption might drive human evolution.
