The Transhumanist Test of Faith by Steve Fuller

Transhumanism is more often regarded as a faith by its detractors than its supporters. For my own part, I have long argued that the signature themes of transhumanism – especially the preoccupation with intellectual immortality and physical resurrection – bear the marks of Abrahamic theology.

Call for Papers Special Issue on Animal Enhancement Between the Species

Much philosophical discussion has been centered and devoted to the subject of human enhancement by means of technological interventions and artifacts.

The goal of this special issue is to consider the concept of ‘animal enhancement’ as such. Papers that foster philosophical, ethical, theological and ecological reflection on animal enhance...
