CALL FOR PAPERS: TRANSHUMANISM Logos. Anales del Seminario de Metafísica

LOGOS. Anales del Seminario de Metafísica (VOL. 53, 2020) Special Guest Editor: Mariano Rodríguez González

The astonishing development of N(ano)B(io)I(nfo)C(ognitive) technologies in our global digital society has strengthened the idea that the possibilities opened up by the artificial improvement of the human being, which would help or even replace education in the humanist traditional sense, may or must finally lead to the transition to a new species, to true post-humans superior to all the past humans in terms of their biologic...

Reflections on James Hughes’ Problems of Transhumanism (Part 5) by Ojochogwu Abdul

Part 5: Belief in Progress vs. Rational Uncertainty

The Enlightenment, with its confident efforts to fashion a science of man, was archetypal of the belief and quest that humankind will eventually achieve lasting peace and happiness. In what some interpret as a reformulation of Christianity’s teleological salvation history in which the People of God will be redeemed at the end of days and with the Kingdom of Heaven established on Earth, most Enlightenment thinkers believed in the inevitability of human political and technological p...

Reflections on James Hughes’ Problems of Transhumanism (Part 3) by Ojochogwu Abdul

“Transhumanists, like Enlightenment partisans in general, believe that human nature can be improved but are conflicted about whether liberal democracy is the best path to betterment. The liberal tradition within the Enlightenment has argued that individuals are best at finding their own interests and should be left to improve themselves in self-determined ways. But many people are mistaken about their own best interests, and more rational elites may have a better understanding of the general good. Enlightenment partisans have often made a ...
