Towards a New Enlightenment? A Transcendent Decade

This book examines where the great scientific and technological advances of the last decade are leading us and their impact on how humankind will live in the future.
 
This impact will depend to a large extent on the decisions we take from now on. In this sense, an important step is to promote what this book calls “a new Enlightenment“: a broad dialogue to establish new philosophical and ethical foundations that sustain an economy, a society, a culture and regulations adapted to the new scientific / technological environment with the objective of maximizing growth and wellbeing while at the same time encouraging  the development of collective initiatives to tackle climate change.
