Ulrich Richter Morales delves into the legacy —sometimes transparent, sometimes mystical and esoteric— of the Pythagoreans in their different historical incarnations, with special emphasis on their dominant role in the digital age, and raises a debate on the kind of machines that we must develop. Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, among others, are declared heirs of the mathematician from Samos, and always involved in controversy, they are inseparable from our ideas about how the world works. Getting to know them as individuals and thinkers is a way to better understand modern life and our role as citizens in the unstable and volatile terrain on which we find ourselves.
