Metaman: The Merging of Humans and Machines into a Global Superorganism

By Gregory Stock
Simon & Schuster, 1993
365 pp. $23.00
Purchase

A breathless, copiously illustrated exposition that brings together a bewildering array of information, presented with considerable ingenuity. Although the reader may find the ultimate argument unconvincing (Stock sees man on the path to global union, a view that will leave much of his audience unconvinced), the book derives a quirky charm from its intensity. Technology is moving at a pace that often exceeds our comprehension, and even if one rejects the implications of Stocks argument for international relations, one should at least have to think about why one does so.
