Book Description

Oct. 15 2010
Teleology explores our understanding of purpose and creation through the lens of rapid technological change that brings about a new form of intelligence. Framed by the struggles of twin brothers, the story begins and ends millions of years in the future while looking back to the events and tribulations that transformed human consciousness. Teleology is post-dystopian, avoiding the cliché of painting technology as a tool of oppression, and instead asking how breakneck technological change changes us and our relationship with one another and concepts of good, evil, and God.

3.0 out of 5 stars Caveat Emptor Oct. 22 2013
By Robert Boyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
In fairness to the author I was looking for a book on the subject of teleology (the philosophy of "final cause", or ends and purposes) and not a speculative / SF novel about twin brothers. I have not read enough of this novel to judge its merits as a work of fiction (the opening chapters were not especially promising -- but who knows? -- as an SF topic the idea is certainly original enough), but it is NOT a text on the philosophy of teleology. Hence the neutral review and the caveat. The title came up with my search for "teleology" among other books (all philosophical texts) on the philosophical subject with at least two having the same exact title: "Teleology". Had the novel been called "The Physician's Desk Reference 2011" or "Obamacare" at least some customers would have been equally mislead. Moral --know what you are buying, and don't judge a book by its cover (title). ;-P
