Human Futures addresses biological developments such as cloning, genetic modification, stem cell research alongside issues like the ethics and aesthetics of human enhancement and the future of biological migration. The result is an invaluable resource for anyone with an interest in the clash of art, technology, and science and its impact on our very human future.
