IN SEARCH OF A LOST FUTURE:
How to live, thrive and survive in a post-Anthropocene, post-human and post-reality world

Nick Silver

Scientists are warning that to avoid environmental catastrophe, we have to immediately transform our economies. Well that’s not going to happen, so what should we do?

Assuming we survive the cataclysms, we will be living in a barely recognisable world, where humans, and our AI servants, will have to run the planet. But currently we’re in no shape to do that – our institutions and even our philosophies, are woefully inadequate. Given the magnitude of the task we had better start thinking about it now – which is what this book dares to do.
