Productbeschrijving

Productbeschrijving

Politics is broken. Technology risks making matters worse. But transhumanism can fix it. Comprehensively. Via the profound application of technology that uplifts the best qualities of humanity, enabling unprecedented health, intelligence, wellbeing, democracy, and liberty. With no-one left behind.

These are the core claims in the book "Transcending Politics" by David Wood, former smartphone industry executive, who is now chair of London Futurists and executive director of Transpolitica.

Selected feedback on "Transcending Politics":

"From homo economicus to transhumanism and the abolition of aging. From knocking on doors every five years to liquid democracy and citizens’ assemblies. From nations competing in global markets to transnational networks sharing artificial intelligence and energy sources. It’s all there – and with heart." – Indra Adnan, Co-initiator, The Alternative UK

"We live in amazing times where tools to analyze and fix our problems are now available. Why not apply them to politics? In this fascinating and informative book, David Wood takes us on a tour of the near future. He explores what’s happening, why and how we can harness the promise of technology to move beyond red team/blue team bickering to a place where government decisions have transparency and effect." – Toby Unwin, Chief Innovation Officer, Premonition LLC

"Politics plays a significant role in the possibility of our future survival and flourishing. But politics today is largely broken. In response, Wood urges us to embrace transhumanism – to use technology to overcome the limitations of brains formed in the Pleistocene. For without greater intelligence, emotional well-being, and better political institutions, we are doomed. This carefully and conscientiously crafted work defends this thesis with vigour, and it is a welcome relief from the ubiquitous nonsense that passes for political dialogue today. Let us hope that it informs that dialogue and fuels action." – John G Messerly, Author of “Reason and Meaning”, one of “Top 100 Philosophy Blogs on the Planet”

"Most transhumanism advocates wish to ‘transcend’ politics in the sense of replacing it – that is, when they’re not trying to avoid it altogether. Their utopian visions may be clear but they haven’t a clue about how to achieve them. David Wood is relatively unique in addressing this matter head on. A particularly refreshing feature of his approach is that he is willing to accept people as they are before attempting to foist a radical future on them. Wood combines the right balance of enthusiasm and sobriety to take forward a truly ‘technoprogressive’ vision for transhumanism." – Prof Steve Fuller, Auguste Comte Chair in Social Epistemology, University of Warwick

"For anyone interested in whatever comes next for a truly technoprogressive society, David Wood lays out in clear, accessible language not only the case for why the politics of the future must be transformed, but also the way in which we might want to go about it. The topics he covers represent some of the most important conversations we need to be having as a society, today, here and now, before it’s too late." - Gareth John, Independent Researcher, Aberystwyth

"David Wood’s scenarios for the future are so engaging that Transcending Politics will become a must-read for anyone engaged in politics or interested in the future of humanity. Readers will be captivated by the author’s description of potential impact of exponential growth of technology on human progress, and the changes needed in the relationships between the governed and the governing if we are to mitigate successfully the plethora of existential risks facing humanity." – Tony Czarnecki, Managing Partner, Sustensis

"Jeremy Bentham meets Charlie Stross in David Wood’s creative patchwork of classical politics and radical transhumanist transformation." – Giulio Prisco, Board Member, IEET
