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...

Psychological Impediments to Good Thinking by John G. Messerly

“Nothing is so firmly believed as what we least know.” ~ Montaigne

Good reasoning is hard because we are largely non-rational and emotional beings.1 Here are some psychological impediments to good reasoning. Remember that I am not getting paid to share this information about cogent reasoning. I could make more money going on late night TV and peddling nonsense like so many others do. My goal is to educate.

Raging against the machine by Rick Searle

One can assume that few of us know or have thought all that much about how a Republic under president Trump isn’t just a sort of primal scream emanating from the failures of US politics and culture that we’ve been storing up for over a generation- though it is that as well- but stands as only one representative of a truly global pheno...

In defense of enlightenment: “science adviser” David Gelernter and the rise of anti-science intellectualism by David Brin

Consternation rippled across the American scientific community, upon learning that Yale Professor David Gelernter interviewed with (then) president-elect Trump, for the job of White House Science Adviser. Gelernter became a doyen of the remnant conservative intelligencia, for denouncing liberal influence on college campuses. His 2013 book, America-Lite: How Imperial Academia Dismantled Our Culture (and Ushered in the Obamacrats) blames “belligerent leftists” for purported disintegration of patriotism and traditional family values.

Propriété intellectuelle du vivant, brevets et longévité pour tous by Hadrian Pourbahman

Beaucoup se représentent la propriété intellectuelle sous la forme d’une taxe : taxe sur la copie privée, sur les droits d’auteur… Mais en réalité, cette notion, dont l’origine remonte au XVème siècle, s’est peu à peu immiscée dans tous les aspects de notre société, y compris lorsque que l’on raisonne en terme de droit du vivant et de longévité.
