This Artificial Womb Could Revolutionize the Way We Treat Premature Babies by George Dvorsky

Incubators and ventilators are invaluable when treating extremely premature infants, but they’re a far cry from the cozy confines of a mother’s womb. In an effort to create an environment that more closely approximates the real thing, researchers have now developed an artificial womb that could dramatically reduce mortality and disease in preemies.

A Modest Proposal for Suicide as a Facilitator of Transhumanism by Steve Fuller

Perhaps the most potent argument against suicide in modern secular societies is that it constitutes wastage of the agent’s own life and commits at the very least indirect harm to the lives of others who in various ways have depended on the agent. However, the force of this argument could be mitigated if the suicide occurred in the context of experimentation, including self-experimentation, with very risky treatments that aim to extend the human condition. Suicides in these cases could be quite informative and hence significantly advance th...

How to Survive the Next Catastrophic Pandemic by George Dvorsky

Experts say it’s not a matter of if, but when a global scale pandemic will wipe out millions of people. And we are grossly unprepared for the next major outbreak. But in the event of a devastating pandemic—whether it be triggered by a mutated strain of an existing virus or a bioengineered terror weapon—there are some practical things you can do, both before and during the outbreak, to increase your odds of survival.

Value Conflicts surrounding the Meaning of Life in the Trans/Post/Human Future by Steve Fuller

Posthumanists and perhaps especially transhumanists tend to downplay the value conflicts that are likely to emerge in the wake of a rapidly changing technoscientific landscape. What follows are six questions and scenarios that are designed to focus thinking by drawing together several tendencies that are not normally related to each other but which nevertheless provide the basis for future value conflicts.

Le syndrome de Stockholm de la mortalité by Alexandre Maurer

L’un des objectifs du transhumanisme est l’allongement de la durée de vie en bonne santé, voire l’amortalité (vivre sans limitation de durée). De nombreuses personnes rejettent cette idée de façon brutale, presque instinctive, comme si l’on s’attaquait à leurs valeurs les plus intimes.

Longevity and the Christian Tradition by Ilia Stambler

It has been a common conviction among atheist life-extensionists that religion generally, and particular branches of Christianity, are somehow intrinsically averse to far-reaching biomedical interventions or even to the idea of human life-extension, placing a greater emphasis on faith-healing and life in the world to come.

Et si l’enfance devenait rare ? by Marc Roux

Les perspectives démographiques envisagées par les transhumanistes n’impliquent pas seulement un allongement radical de la durée de vie en bonne santé mais aussi une diminution de la part des plus jeunes dans la population. Quelles conséquences pourraient avoir une raréfaction de l’enfance ?

Healthcare and Healthcare Ethics in the Trump Era by Arthur Caplan

Hi. I am Art Caplan from the Division of Medical Ethics at the New York University Langone School of Medicine in Manhattan.

We have a newly elected president, Donald J. Trump. He will be making many changes to the policies of the Obama years. What will his election mean for healthcare? What will it mean for ethical issues that come up in the context of healthcare?
