Biological And Technological Evolution

Let's look in a bit more detail at what Wells, Anderson and Wright do here.

Applying Darwinism to Victorian class society gave Wells the bourgeoisie devolving into Eloi and the proletariat devolving into Morlocks.
Anderson assumed continued evolution of humanity into Danellians.

Humanity coexists with, merges with or is superceded by AI.

That seems comprehensive?

Kaor, Paul!

I would have added, under "Technological", that humanity, in one series, refused to be marginalized by the AIs.
