Alien Sex in Silicon Valley

ALIEN SEX IN SILICON VALLEY is the story of Alan Burnett, a schizophrenic Southerner working at a Bay Area company, which he believes is run by extraterrestrials. By now investigating corporate culture, Alan expose ever-widening conspiracies of alien infiltration. However, in discovering that the aliens' chief weapon against humanity is story, he realizes that the fate of human freedom lies in distinguishing human values from extraterrestrial machine values. "Alien Sex in Silicon Valley is a strong novel with insightful political views. Very enjoyable " John Zerzan Author of Twilight of the Machines, Elements of Refusal, Future Primitive: And Other Essays, and Running On Emptiness: The Pathology of Civilization "Dave Alber has written a very funny novel about the ways myths underlie daily life. Alien Sex in Silicon Valley shows how myths influence corporate business culture, the public relations industry-even American nationalism. Terrorism and 9-11 are here. Beyond these is the novelist's apparent hope for laughter as one of the most cleansing programs in the human genome." Dr. William G. Doty Professor & Chair Emeritus, The University of Alabama/Tuscaloosa Author of Mythography: The Study of Myths and Rituals and co-editor of Jacking in to the Matrix Franchise: Cultural Reception and Interpretation "Reminiscent of both Kurt Vonnegut's Player Piano and Daniel Quinn's Ishmael, Alber's well-crafted fiction exposes us to the perversity and ultimate social insanity of today's dominant culture " Doug Brown, Ph. D. Author of Being is Enough and Insatiable Is Not Sustainable "Alien Sex in Silicon Valley takes the reader into a most remarkable experience The reader will find herself or himself taken into a story about being taken into a story. Importantly provocative " David L. Miller, Ph.D. Watson-Ledden Professor of Religion, Emeritus, Syracuse University Author of Three Faces of God, Hells and Holy Ghosts, and Gods and Games

Turned On

Turned On

'Illuminating, witty and written with a wide open mind' Sunday Times The idea of the seductive sex robot is the stuff of myth, legend and science fiction. From the myth of Laodamia in Ancient Greece to twenty-first century shows such as Westworld, robots in human form have captured our imagination, our hopes and our fears. But beyond the fantasies there are real and fundamental questions about our relationship with technology as it moves into the realm of robotics. Turned On explores how the emerging and future development of sexual companion robots might affect us and the society in which we live. It explores the social changes arising from emerging technologies, and our relationships with the machines that someday may care for us and about us. Sex robots are here, and here to stay, and more are coming. Computer scientist and sex-robot expert Kate Devlin is our guide as we seek to understand how this technology is developing. From robots in Greek myth and the fantastical automata of the Middle Ages through to the sentient machines of the future that embody the prominent AI debate, she explores the 'modern' robot versus the robot servants we were promised by twentieth century sci-fi, and delves into the psychological effects of the technology, and issues raised around gender politics, diversity, surveillance and violence. This book answers all the questions you've ever had about sex robots, as well as all the ones you haven't yet thought of.

Just Hierarchy

Just Hierarchy

A trenchant defense of hierarchy in different spheres of our lives, from the personal to the politicalAll complex and large-scale societies are organized along certain hierarchies, but the concept of hierarchy has become almost taboo in the modern world. Just Hierarchy contends that this stigma is a mistake. In fact, as Daniel Bell and Wang Pei show, it is neither possible nor advisable to do away with social hierarchies. Drawing their arguments from Chinese thought and culture as well as other philosophies and traditions, Bell and Wang ask which forms of hierarchy are justified and how these can serve morally desirable goals. They look at ways of promoting just forms of hierarchy while minimizing the influence of unjust ones, such as those based on race, sex, or caste.Which hierarchical relations are morally justified and why? Bell and Wang argue that it depends on the nature of the social relation and context. Different hierarchical principles ought to govern different kinds of social relations: what justifies hierarchy among intimates is different from what justifies hierarchy among citizens, countries, humans and animals, and humans and intelligent machines. Morally justified hierarchies can and should govern different spheres of our social lives, though these will be very different from the unjust hierarchies that have governed us in the past.A vigorous, systematic defense of hierarchy in the modern world, Just Hierarchy examines how hierarchical social relations can have a useful purpose, not only in personal domains but also in larger political realms.
