CHARLES T. RUBIN is an associate professor of political science at Duquesne University, where he teaches courses in political philosophy and about the normative aspects of policy making. He is the author of The Green Crusade: Rethinking the Roots of Radical Environmentalism (1998), and has written for The New Atlantis (where he is a contributing editor), First Things, Commentary, and other publications.
In Eclipse of Man, Charles T. Rubin traces the intellectual origins of the movement to perfect and replace the human race. He shows how today’s advocates of radical enhancement are—like their forebears—deeply dissatisfied with given human nature and fixated on grand visions of a future shaped by technological progress.
