Last year, a revised and updated version of Gregory Stock’s The Book of Questions was published.   Revised and updated is an understatement–many, if not most of the questions in this edition are totally different from those in Gregory Stock’s original book (which I still highly recommend).  It’s practically a different book.  And this is quite appropriate and practical; so much has changed since 1987 (unfortunately).  Dr. Stock explains it best in his introduction:

Today, the central challenges of life have not changed, but culture has.  Context has.  Language and focus have.  This new edition is more than a cosmetic scrubbing of dated phrasings and references; it’s a fresh new book with over a hundred new questions that infuse current technology and society into age-old dilemmas.

Here is the first question from this 2013 edition of Gregory Stock’s book, followed by my answer:

Technology has become a part of us.  Would you rather lose the use of all motorized vehicles, all telecommunication devices and computers, or one of your hands?

All telecommunication devices and computers.
