    1. The evolution of Humanity played out on stage27 March 2014 When I picked this book up again I noticed that I have already read and commented on it, and I suspect that the comment that I wrote was back when I simply commented on books that I had already read not realising that there were a number of books that I wanted to read again (including this one). However I have decided that what I will do is write an updated commentary, though I still believe the comments that I made originally still hold [...]

    2. One of Dad's oldest friends, Ken Bennett, former professor of English at Lake Forest University, is a Shavian; I'd enjoyed the little Shaw I'd read and the description of Methuselah in a book of the world's greatest literature I'd poured through for ideas for future reading had made the five plays sound very intriguing, so I bought the thing and dived in, reading it every night at my ER desk at Evanston Hospital.Well, I finished the thing, but couldn't say I was much impressed. The plays are int [...]

    3. The evolution of humanity played out on stage23 July 2011 This play is my favourite Bernard Shaw play next to Pygmalion, and having been written in the early twenties, it not only shows some more maturity in the playwriting, but also explores a topic that was believed to be dead after World War I: the concept of Human Enlightenment. The concept, popular in the late 19th Century and early 20th Century was that after almost a century of peace that the human race was on the doorstep of a new golden [...]

    4. There are two ideas you cannot even suggest in a society such as ours (early 21st century U.S.) without being automatically lumped with religious zealots: first, that something is missing from Darwin's fans view of evolution: you would just get people condescendingly trying to enlighten you as to the fact that dinosaurs existed. Second, that normal good natured men are puppets of profiteering when you remove religion from their lives.Should you choose to combine both views in one writing you wou [...]

    6. This is one of those fascinating works that has the potential to change your life, or at the least the way you see your life. While countless science fiction novelists glibly deal with immortality as if it were just a fine way to live, Shaw explores the psychological consequences. What sort of mind would it take, if you decided to live for, say 300 years? Would you have the strength for such a life? Could you live with yourself for that long? Take a journey through the five plays of this cycle. [...]

    7. IN THE PREFACE,SHAW'S suggestion of an INCREASED LIFE EXPECTANCY AT BIRTH attainable through CREATIVE EVOLUTION is not a viable proposition - however i liked it - KNOWLEDGE IS AN ENDLESS PURSUIT AND ONE LIFETIME IS NOT ENOUGH - FRANKLYN AND CONRAD are unanimous in this context and even after things are out of scientific favour,the proposition rings out loud to me at least - our follies pave the path for future accomplishments and so EVE thinks that her future sons would indulge in better things [...]

    8. An attempt by one of the most intelligent thinkers, writers, people of last century to peep into future of evolution - beyond the present limits of where we are. Life spans of longer than a century or two, youth and ability well into third century, or lives a millennium long with growing up and reproduction finished soon so the true vocation can be taken up, of thought and creation? Sensational, either way. Sunday, September 21, 2008.

    10. My first Shaw play. From 1921, Shaw is definitely reeling from the war in this imaginary retelling of a past and future Genesis. The surreality of the play however keeps me from wondering how serious - or comic - the play is supposed to be.Another last thought: I kept reflecting on how contemporary audiences, even Christian ones, would probably not be biblically literate enough to understand such an anti-Christian play.

    11. This ain't a play, this is a goddamn novel. Goodness, Mr Shaw had a lot of things to say. Effin' funny though. Like when that woman failed to shoot Napoleon from two feet away and he plays dead and then calls her a woman for being a bad shot.Then, the final words from Lilith. Woo timeless, that.

    12. Bernard Shaw explores the psychological consequences of immortality in a series of 5 plays that dramatize the evolution of humanity:In the Beginning (B.C. 4004), The Gospel of the Brothers Barnabas (Present Day), The Thing Happens (A.D. 2170), Tragedy of an Elderly Gentleman (A.D. 3000), As Far as Thought Can Reach (A.D. 31,920).

    13. If I had not read the preface, I would have thought it was dated fiction punctuated by moments of humor. Knowing that Shaw saw his wishful thinking as some sort deep truth, however, spoiled the fun favorite quote: "You are always in little squabbling cliques; and the worst cliques are those which consist of one man."

    15. Strange - a sort of extremely slow progress that runs antithetical to modernity. In many ways (in terms of the nonfiction aspect of Shaw's project), J.B.S Haldane's "Daedalus, or, Science and the Future" is far superior, or Bernal's _The World, the Flesh, and the Devil_.

    16. I found this book fascinating - the whole idea of people living longer & what that might look like. Very science fiction in an old-fashioned way :)
