Human Extinction

A History of the Science and Ethics of Annihilation

«

In this fascinating book, Émile Torres surveys the surprisingly rich history of apocalyptic thought in earlier centuries; this forms the backdrop to a comprehensive survey and critique of modern discourses on this compelling issue which confronts us—and does so with ever-increasing urgency. The book is fascinating, thought-provoking, and deserving of wide readership.

Lord Martin Rees, Astronomer Royal and author of Our Final Hour

Torres uncovers and analyzes, in novel ways, remarkable developments in philosophy and science, new thinking that undermines everything preceding. We have hardly begun to grasp the meaning of this upheaval in how people perceive humanity’s future. Torres’s engagingly written book, admirably thorough, is a good start for facing our awesome responsibilities.

Spencer Weart, former director of the Center for History of Physics of the American Institute of Physics and author of Nuclear Fear: A History of Images and The Discovery of Global Warming
