Human values change over time. Unfortunately, this change is not always in the best interests of humankind. Moral decay, for instance, is currently taking a huge toll on the well-being and happiness of the individual.

Why do human values evolve? Why does this evolution almost always go in a negative direction? Is there anything that humans can do to control this downward spiral?

"Steering Evolution" proposes a theory that answers these questions. There are certain parallels between the evolution of genetic information and the evolution of manmade information, but these two forms of evolution are diametrically opposed in the way that they create and affect human values. Fortunately, there is a way for us to free ourselves from the tyranny of evolution, and put the destiny of humankind into the hands of humankind.
