George Ace, a crusty old dairy farmer I once knew, had an expression The big print gives it all to you The fine print takes it all away That s rather much the way it is with Francis Fukuyama.Fukuyama, a Johns Hopkins University professor and philosophical gadfly, lays on us provocative titles like, Our Posthuman Future Consequences of the Biotechnology Revolution, or, The End of History, his earlier book, and then starts chiseling away at definitions so as to say, in effect, Oh, I didn t really [...]

Reading this book made me think of a line from the movie version of Jurassic Park Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn t stop to think if they should This book is an investigation of what we can do with biotechnology now, what we might be able to do in the future, and what we should or should not do It is broken down into three sections scientific, philosophical, and legislative.1 the technology itself A look at trends in neuropharmacology the m [...]

This book is absolutely shockingly bad It is rare for me to be simply horrified at a book I can normally find an idea or phrase or concept to think about even if I disagree with it But this book is so basic, it is almost pseudo academic It takes an array of research into biology and biochemical interventions such as ritalin and then raises supposedly grand arguments about ethics and human dignity Causal connections are forged where nothing except casual links may exist This is the worst book I h [...]

This is a really great book if you can get past the first chapter or so, which is pretty dense Fukuyama provides an in depth and well rounded look at the philosophical, social, and evolutionary implications of bioengineering He takes some rather interesting and controversial positions, but they are well thought out and supported with hard facts and straight forward logic Took me a while to read it, but I m glad I did.

When the epigraph the quote shown after the dedication and before the contents page referenced an endnote of 12 sentences, the reader should be immediately forewarned of some difficult text ahead Speaking of the superscript text noted endnotes, this book has twenty one pages of them Thankfully many endnotes list only source notes, however they have the added feature that the endnote pages, rather than simply showing the number of the chapter they refer to, instead display the actual name of the [...]

When a book starts out talking about where we re at in society, and you note that it makes two central points, and both are hopelessly wrong, it makes you think that maybe either the author is confused, or timeliness of the book might have already passed us by.In this case, I think it was a timeliness issue It was funny though The first thing I noticed was when the author said something along the lines of, Deregulation of the financial industry has led to a golden age of wealth acquisition Whate [...]

Having encountered numerous references to this book in other discussions of contemporary bio technologies, I felt it was time to actually read the book And I am glad I did The book is broken up into three distinct sections, the first acting as a survey of recent bioetech trends, the second as a philosophical treatment of the ideas of human rights and human nature, and lastly a proposal for future regulations Of the three sections, I most enjoyed the philosophical maneuvering of the second sectio [...]

A deeply confused book that tries to map the potential political implications of the biotechnological revolution It may be satisfactory for self indulging snobs who want to invoke Plato and Kant in favor of very simple ideological points, but it falls short in establishing a coherent liberal framework in which these innovations make sense The aim of this book is to inform policy makers about the necessity of building institutions to remedy potential negative results of biotechnological innovatio [...]

Ever since I read The Future Doesn t Need Us in 1999 from Wired magazine, I have been following GNR Genetics, Nano Technology, and Robotics This may be one of the reasons why postmodernism didn t become an obsession with me I knew the world was becoming post human That seemed way significant.In Our Postman Future, Fukuyama takes a look at the ethical issues related to human enhancement.This shelf is dedicated to some of the books that have influenced me as I wrote Makers of Fire Some of these b [...]

Review 1.0 My father bought me this book Perhaps it was the second English book he ever bought me I am also sure that he only picked this book because it was placed on the front self, looked cool and all So I had this book which I would never ever buy in the first place and enjoyed it Maybe I had to review it again in the future But in the mind of a barely highschool student at that time, I was impressed by the book The whole vision of the future, when cloning was quite a new subject at school a [...]

Fukuyama has a lot of interesting ideas, but his lack of scientific evidence and extreme predictions are disconcerting to the reader and personally make me doubt his opinion If you like biotechnology, his perspective is interesting and will keep you curious.

When Fukuyama, in his latest book, published a few months ago, takes to task large segments of the scientifical and bioethical community, we should pay attention, for he is rarely misinformed and never less than cogent in his analyses The author s main point is that human nature, and the social and political institutions built on it such as democracy, the rule of law and the capitalist market , is at risk from changes in biotechnology, such as neuropharmacology drugs capable of altering human be [...]

Overall, the book seems to be an extensive mea culpa on the part of the author for his much criticized 1989 book The end of history and the last man In short, in the first book, Fukuyama argued that, after liberal democracy had shown itself to be the only viable political model, civilization would enter an era of everlasting bliss.In this book from 2002, Fukuyama focusses on the widespread critique on his earlier book stating that there can not be an end to history as long as there is no end to [...]

If nothing else, the breadth of knowledge that Fukuyama brings to bear on the ethics of biotechnology is remarkable he is as comfortable talking about ethology as he is Kantian ethics or international regulatory frameworks, and he does a great job discussing all of these His prose is clear and persuasive, and his argument relatively straightforward.His argument can be boiled down to this ethics are based on human nature, biotechnology can alter human nature, if biotechnology isn t properly regul [...]

This book covered some of the philosophical and ethical issues related to biotechnology and biomedical sciences The book started with technologies that are affecting our society now 10% of people are on Prozac what does that mean for democracy and then moved progressively further out into the future, discussing technologies like genetic screens, cloning, and genetic engineering Throughout the book runs a theme warning that without proper regulation, a world like Huxley s Brave New World could be [...]

Although written over 10 years ago, it is even important today to consider the things that Fukuyama writes about as science and technology continues to barrel forward into the future with seemingly little or no barriers What is most important to ponder is what happens to the idea of what it means to be human and upon what do you base these ideas Fukuyama makes a good non religious case that there is something special about being human that we may lose as transhumanist and posthumanist philosoph [...]

It is interesting to think that changes in biotechnology, namely human cloning, DNA recombination and other could have political consequences And how do we regulate the advance of science at an individual or state level Is a natural aristocracy of over intelligent, over beautiful people going to emerge How to we keep our humanity, that undefinable factor X that makes us call ourselves humans Like any good book, this one leaves us will all the questions open, and a warning whatever road we follow [...]

This 2001 book offers very practical and utilitarian approach to biotechnology and what it means to be human in regards to human nature and human dignity Fukuyama brings in information from philosophers, scientists, Darwinists and a host of arguments that suggest we are in a posthuman age, trying to define who we are, yet unable to reach a true consensus A fascinating read.

Was fairly expecting to hate this, to be honest But there s a lot of thought provoking stuff here.The book s not afraid of controversial stuff and there are some uncomfortable passages, I suppose This is one of its strengths.Summary, so far the biotechnological revolution will test our intuition and our institutions regarding the question of what it means to be human.

Great basis for thinking through the policy implications of questions like how will the regime of parental rights shift in a world of cloned embryos Given the failure of Non Proliferation Treaty for nuclear arms methinks Dr Fukuyama lends a little too much credence to regulatory regimes as a vehicle for creating policy and managing risk.

Conclusive proof that the Flying Spaghetti Monster doesn t exist, and we can quit worshipping Him.In a nutshell evolution has transcended the biological substrate meatspace and entered into the mental.It all fits in nicely with the theory of exponential acceleration of knowledge into the coming singularity.

Still don t really agree but at least somewhat better argued than The Case Against Perfection Ethics in the Age of Genetic Engineering in relying on utilitarian considerations than some essentialist bullshit.
