New York Public Library Lectures in Humanities

  • Suggests that technological changes fundamentally alter our ethical and social arrangements
  • Argues that three rapidly advancing new technologies - solar energy, genetic engineering, and world-wide communication - together have the potential to create a more equal distribution of the world's wealth
  • Provides a brilliant reinterpretation of the scientific process and a challenge to use new technologies to close, rather than widen, the gap between rich and poor
