LOREN EISELEY THE BIRD AND THE MACHINE PDF

It is written by Loren Eiseley who establishes ethos immediately in the beginning of the piece when describing his background. He had studied science at the University of Nebraska, he taught at the University of Kansas, and finally he chaired the department of anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania. He is well respected for his contributions to science as well as he is for his perceptive essays and lyrical writing style. He reads that it may not be long until the machines can actually make themselves. He then explains that when he was younger, he was in the desert with a group of men on an expedition to carry on research more effectively.

It is written by Loren Eiseley who establishes ethos immediately in the beginning of the piece when describing his background.

He had studied science at the University of Nebraska, he taught at the University of Kansas, and finally he chaired the department of anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania. He is well respected for his contributions to science as well as he is for his perceptive essays and lyrical writing style. He reads that it may not be long until the machines can actually make themselves. He then explains that when he was younger, he was in the desert with a group of men on an expedition to carry on research more effectively.

There is one moment in the desert, when Eiseley is sitting high up on a ridge, for hours, viewing life with a wary and subdued attention, when he glanced beside his boot and a rattlesnake was coiled up beside him. He did not know how long the deadly snake had been there; perhaps it was already there when he got there.

Eiseley was given a mission next, to find anything alive- birds, reptiles, etc. His job was to capture the birds. One of the most interesting paragraphs, I thought, was when Eiseley described the birds taking over NYC. He decides to let the hawk go, and to let it find its mate in the open sky.

The quote describes how the two are different and how machines lack passion and emotion. Some quotes I found confusing: Eiseley raises the problem, of the possibility that machines are going to be smarter than humans eventually.
