What future?

The lesson of Calvin to the test of technology



The “Calvin Method”, according to Prencipe and Sideri, is also the appropriate key to understanding the era we are living, also made of opposites, of widespread well-being and tremendous inequalities; of deep, very rapid change and human resistance to it. With The Cybernetic Viscount (Luiss University Press) the authors put Calvin’s teaching to the test of technology – in particular, artificial intelligence and its implications. Enrichment of humanity or existential risk? Facilitation or trivialization of knowledge? Yet opposites that coexist and that you need to know in order to handle, with seriousness and lightness, our very future.
