Description

You do everything on your smartphone and love it—you are, now and forevermore, a cyborg. But how would you know if you were a good cyborg? Game designer and philosopher Chris Bateman explores cyborg virtue through problems such as cyberbullying, “fake news,” and the indifference of computers to human needs. Bateman reveals our shallow-sightedness in the face of the unfathomable complexity of our cybernetic networks. Critical yet optimistic, The Virtuous Cyborg rises to the challenge of the twenty-first century by asking us to ponder the question of what kind of cyborgs we want to become.
