From the cover: “This book has developed out of lectures given to a wide variety of audiences who need to know how technology, and computers in particular, will affect their lives, and also to be reassured that they need not be technicians themselves to come to terms with a bewildering technological age. These audiences include students who must capture something of the vision of the times; teaching staff at schools and universities who must prepare their pupils for a completely different kind of world; humanists who see in the age of the technocrat a threat to their values and their way of life, and who must be satisfied that what they believe is still valid.
