We live in the digital age where our sense of self and identity has moved beyond the body to encompass hardware and software. Cyborgs, online representations in social media, avatars, and virtual reality extend our notion of what it means to be human. This approachable book looks at the progression of self from the biological to the technological using a multidisciplinary approach. By examining the notion of personhood from philosophical, psychological, neuroscience, robotics, and artificial intelligence perspectives, The Future of the Self examines how the interface between bodies, brains, and technology may give rise to new forms of human identity. The content is presented in an organized and easy-to-understand fashion to facilitate learning. A gifted researcher, author, and classroom teacher, Jay Friedenberg is one of the most influential voices in the field of artificial psychology.
