Founded in 2010, Humanity+ Press is a nonprofit publisher operated by Humanity+, focused on works that promote understanding, interest and participation in fields of emerging innovation with strong potential to lead to a radically better future.
We are committed to releasing works under author-friendly licenses (currently Creative Commons licenses); and in a variety of formats and media, which currently encompasses both electronic and paper forms.
We publish both single-author works, and multi-author works such as collections of abstracts or papers presented at Humanity+ and other conferences.
Our focus is on nonfiction works aimed at a general audience; but we may also release a small selection of thematically appropriate technical, fiction or artistic works as well.
Our publications are available for purchase online via online retailers, and in many cases for free download as PDFs from this site as well:
- Ten Years to the Singularity if we Really Really Try, and Other Essays on AGI and Its Implications, by Ben Goertzel (see here for a free PDF version)
