RETHINKING OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE FUTURE
Weaving together ideas and insights from science, philosophy, art, and more, Future Rising traces a pathway along the emergence of intelligent life, through what makes us uniquely capable of imagining and creating different futures, to the profound challenges, opportunities, and responsibilities, that come with this.
Beguiling, serendipitous, often-startling, and ultimately life-affirming, in Future Rising, Andrew Maynard will change how you think about the future and how it impacts us in the present.
“Andrew Maynard implores the reader to understand our relationship to technology and plan ahead so that when the future rises to meet us, we are prepared to make it a future of which we can be proud”
― Kelly Weinersmith, author of Soonish
