>Alex Pang blogs about his LA Times review of More Than Human. I thought it was a fine a review, quite positive on the “science” part of the book. Alex’s major ding was that the book wouldn’t convince someone who objected to enhancement technology on religious or theological grounds.
I agree. To be honest, I’m not sure there’s a book I could have written that would do that. If someone has a religious objection to stem cell research, for instance, there’s not much room for persuasion.
But I do think there are a lot of people in the middle ground. People who are nervous about these technologies but still open to rational arguments. People who are worried about social consequences rather than metaphysical or religious issues. They’re the audience I most hope to sway, and I hope the book is persuasive in that domain.
