Utopia of the Wastelands by Rick Searle

Part of the problem with utopia is the question of where do you put it. After all, what any imaginary ideal society ultimately ends up being is its “own world turned upside down”, which means that the world, as it is, must not have a place for anything like a paradise on earth, otherwise an author would have had no reason to dream up a utopia in the first place.

The Future of Humanity: An Intimate Techno-Relationship by Kevin LaGrandeur

Futurists tend to exaggerate, overestimating the change that’s heading our way. Most likely there will be no new species, no destructive post-human scenario, no sci-fi movie style acceleration of evolution. However, what we can say or even predict with certainty is that the way we interact with the world and with the machines of the future will change. Human beings will remain so, but their relationship with objects will be deeper, a kind technological intimacy

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. Indeed, without that theological backdrop, transhumanism’s zeal for mind uploading and cryonics looks simply bizarre. However, in this context, transhumanists can reasonably argue that they are scientifically delivering on those original theologica...

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. Many of these interventions, technologies and systems can, however, be applied to similar enhancement goals to nonhuman animals, yet little philosophical and ethical debate has considered such.

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...
