In this volume, excerpted from Charles Darwin: A Celebration of His Life and Legacy (NewSouth Books, 2013), Shawn Jacobson uses the huge corpus of knowledge about human evolution and uniqueness accumulated since Darwin as a jumping-off place for informed speculation about the future evolution of Homo sapiens. What Darwin could not anticipate is now here: biotechnology that empowers us to shape our own evolution. Jacobsen combines his knowledge as a professional biologist and his creativity as a science fiction writer to urge reflection on how we ought to apply our newly acquired biotechnologies.
