Editorial Reviews

Review

This evenhanded primer on a topic whose significance is becoming increasingly recognized ought, as per its inclusion in this series, to receive wide exposure. It will naturally appeal more to those with lay interests in philosophy, ethics, anthropology, computer science, cognitive science, engineering, sf, and world issues.—Library Journal

Shanahan's presentation is succinct, comprehensive and commendably accessible for such a complex subject.
