Reviews

'Fuller is the closest thing to a Foucault writing today in the English language.' - Metascience

'Takes the debate up a level (if not several levels) in terms of active and considered engagement with the future.' - BioCentre, http://bit.ly/rthOsV

'This is a brave and interesting book, which combines discourses that should mutually engage, but normally do not: biological and theological discussions of "humanity", discussions of transhumanism and evolution, and the policy discussions of convergent technology. Connecting them provides an opportunity to rethink the category of the human. Steve Fuller grasps this opportunity with gusto, in an accessible and wide-ranging overview.' - Professor Stephen Turner, University of South Florida, USA

'Humanity 2.0 offers a wide-ranging and timely account of the next stage of technoscience: the development of a new stage of humanity. Fuller bridges the concerns of science studies and science policy, exploring the historical and philosophical currents underlying the creation of a new biotechnological species, and highlights how the technoscientific industrial complex seeks to construct a new humanity as both product and consumer.' - Robert Frodeman, Director, Center for the Study of Interdisciplinarity, University of North Texas, USA

'Our understanding of humanity is sure to evolve in the course of this century, and this book enables us to think critically about our prospects.' - The Scientific and Medical Network Review

"Humanity 2.0 can be considered a milestone in Fuller's work." - Francis Remedios, LSE Review of Books
