Politics has already been cyborged in ways that touch us all: on-line voting promises to change who participates in the demogratic process.

Wars are won on video screens, biotechnological advances - cloning, sexual protheses, gene patents - are redefining life, death, and family in ways that strain the social contract. In the face of these advances, visions of the cyborg future range from the utopian to the nightmarish, from a spiritual super-race transcending the bodys confines to a soulless Borg consuming human individuality.

Only through an ethically grounded understanding of these issues, Gray argues, can we combat the threats to our freedom and even our survival.
