Robert A. Schultzabout this book: How did human beings go from being wild animals a few million years ago to be currently able to destroy their own life support system? My book answers this question.
A quote from the forward by David Rosen, President, Kendall College of Art and Design:
"The current of [Schultz's] ideas flows through his two previous volumes. One will find the same exhilarating coming together about technology and ethics here that one finds in those. But here the stakes are higher, because Schultz has used his breathtaking knowledge and style to deal with the central issue of our day—human survival."
I qualify to attempt this because of my background: A Ph.D in philosophy from Harvard University, specialty ethics. Six years as Data Processing Manager for A-Mark Precious Metals, then in Beverly Hills, CA. Twenty years as Professor of Information Technology at Woodbury University, Burbank, CA. Currently emeritus professor. Hobby is writing books.
My favorite philosophers are: Aristotle, Spinoza, Kant, Nietzsche, Heidegger, John Rawls (my thesis advisor). My least favorite philosophers are Descartes and any other French philosopher with the exceptions of Pascal, Rousseau, and maybe Merleau-Ponty. Deconstructers, deconstruct thyselves. Other authors I esteem are: Freud, Jung, Levi-Strauss, Richard Leakey, E.O. Wilson, Jared Diamond.
My two previous books are: Contemporary Issues in Ethics and Information Technology and Information Technology and the Ethics of Globalization
