Must A Human Be An Ape?  The Ultimate Problem of Self-Classification by Steve Fuller

How humans came to descend from apes The Oxford English Dictionaries define ‘human’ in three ways, which are listed in the following order: (1) whatever distinguishes people from God, animals and machines; (2) whenever people behave in a highly desirable fashion; (3) whoever is a member of the genus Homo. These are really quite different definitions. The first has the greatest conceptual clarity, but its clarity is limited to the realm of the conceptual. Making that definition work in practice is diabolical. The second is unclear in both...

The name Edgist is similar to edge which refers to a new subculture...
