Summary

Onco-mice and cloned sheep, drones and auto-automobiles, neuro-enhancement and prosthetic therapy: Is transhumanism a "movement that epitomizes the most daring, courageous, imaginative, and idealistic aspirations of humanity" (Ronald Bailey 2004), or rather "the world's most dangerous idea" (Francis Fukuyama 2009)? This volume attempts to elucidate what we understand by the term "transhumanism", what topics and problems we face, what media are suitable for classroom use, what lesson scenarios seem effective, what benefits we may reap, and what challenges we have to cope with when we teach transhumanism in English language classes.

    This is a basic grammar, treating of the parts of speech, syntax, versification, pronunciation and punctuation.  The listener is warned that there is quite a dated feel about this little grammar as the author, in keeping with the times (1840), is a frightful snob about social classes, scathing about 'vulgar speech' and also sometimes quite rude about American turns of phrase. The author is not remotely as comical as he thinks he is, but it has its moments. (Summary by Ruth Golding)

    Jack London (real name John Griffith) is an American writer. In his youth, he changed many casual professions, traveled and even spent a month in prison for vagrancy. In the northern stories, London opposes the world of untouched nature to civilization, but, believing in the beneficent nature, does not cease to bow before the technical and cultural achievements of civilization. In his works, life is simple and cruel, requiring endurance, courage, willpower and endurance from people. The writer poetizes the right of the strong, admires the manifestations of the anarchic principle in his heroes. The audiobook was read by professional American actor Adam Maskin in English.
