A Dangerous Master

How to Keep Technology From Slipping
Beyond Our Control

There is no doubt that we’re in an era of remarkable scientific advancement. From nanotechnology to synthetic organisms, new technologies are poised to radically transform life as we know it. However, with profound growth comes profound risk. In “A Dangerous Master”, renowned ethicist Wendell Wallach explores the challenges of these advancements. Despite the great promise of scientific discovery, Wallach argues that we could unleash an array of forces beyond human control. This captivating and informative analysis examines both the fear and the hype around our incredible progress while proposing solutions to regain control of our technological future. Wallach’s narrative offers stark warnings alongside hope, compelling us to confront the practical–and moral–dimensions of our creations.

In this classic writing on non-duality, John Levy addresses the question which has always puzzled humankind : ‘What am I?’

Levy enlists the aid of the essential doctrine of Vedanta, ‘the end of knowledge,’ and its highest aspect of Advaita, or Non-Duality:

“…if l possess a body and a mind, I am clearly other than the body or the mind.
If man is not the body and mind he believes himself to be, what is he? If you rest in consciousness, you will at once be happy and free from bondage.”

Coming to the End of the Spiritual Search

NOW AVAILABLE IN PAPERBACK
