Michael Rectenwald has published “The Singularity and Socialism” in the October 5, 2013 issue of Insurgent Notes: Journal of Communist Theory and Practice. The paper considers the technological singularity as predicted and fostered by Ray Kurzweil and others from the standpoint of socialism, particularly a left communist perspective. What is a Marxist understanding of the technological singularity? What are the likely prospects for the singularity under existing (capitalist) conditions? What would become of singulartarian technologies in a socialist society? (The essay has been republished by the Institute for Ethics & Emerging Technologies, here.)
