The world is changing so fast that it's hard to know how to think about what we ought to do. We barely have time to reflect on how scientific advances will affect our lives before they're upon us. New kinds of dilemma are springing up. Can robots be held responsible for their actions? Will artificial intelligence be able to predict criminal activity? Is the future gender-fluid? Should we strive to become post-human? Should we use drugs to improve our intimate relationships - or to reduce crime? Our intuitions about questions like these are often both weak and confused. David Edmonds has put together a philosophical task force to get to grips with these challenges. Twenty-nine philosophers present provocative and engaging pieces about aspects of life today, and life tomorrow - birth and death, health and medicine, brain and body, personal relationships, wrongdoing and justice, the internet, animals, and the environment. The future won't look the same when you've finished this book.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Future Morality, edited by David Edmonds, brings together twenty-nine crack ethicists (the promotional materials refer to them as a "philosophical task-force") to tackle novel ethical challenges - the moral problems of the future. . . . Readers will be hard-pressed to find a better introduction to a range of contemporary moral problems. * Simone Gubler, Times Literary Supplement *
Overall, there is a lot to like in this book... The prose is readable and refreshingly jargon-free... and provides information one wouldn't necessarily come across in general-interest publications. * Antoinette LaFarge, Quest: Journal of the Theosophical Society in America *
In this wide-ranging anthology, philosopher Edmonds... brings together some of the brightest minds in philosophy and ethics to discuss the future... This comprehensive overview of looming ethical issues goes a long way toward equipping readers with the tools to work out their own answers to sticky questions. * Publisher's Weekly *
