The Omniquest selection for the 2016 fall semester is The Seventh Sense by Joshua Cooper Ramo, managing director at Kissinger Associates, one of the world’s leading geostrategic advisory firms. Trained as an economist, Mr. Ramo holds degrees from the University of Chicago and New York University. His insightful book weaves history, philosophy, and current technology into a thought-provoking and insightful view of the precipice on which we are situated with the ever expanding networks of our day and beyond.
The conclusion of the book is a call to action not to sacrifice liberty for convenience and to ensure humanity is what drives future developments rather than blindly expanding technology. Mr. Ramo’s views tie closely with our values at Northwood University and we hope you’ll enjoy reading this very special Omniquest selection.
