Man and the Computer

John G. Kemeny

Scribner, New York, 1972. American Museum of Natural History Special Members Edition.

A bit of chipping to front, rear, and spine. Yellowing. Very good.


Predating the microcomputer revolution, Man and the Computer is a prescient critique of modern computing, with a strong sense of distrust for computers that compute on their own; on some level, a prophecy of artificial intelligence. A very cool, pocket sized, affordable edition of an essential piece of technological critique. This particular edition seems to have been produced to coincide with his lecture series at the American Museum of Natural History.
