Philosophy
Transhumanism is a loosely defined movement that has developed gradually over the past two decades. The modern philosophy of transhumanism was authored by Max More, PhD in 1990 in the essay “TRANSHUMANISM Toward a Futurist Philosophy“. According to More, “Transhumanism is a class of philosophies of life that seek the continuation and acceleration of the evolution of intelligent life beyond its currently human form and human limitations by means of science and technology, guided by life- promoting principles and values.”<br />
<br />
Transhumanism promotes an interdisciplinary approach to understanding and evaluating the opportunities for enhancing the human condition and the human organism opened up by the advancement of technology. Attention is given to both present technologies, like genetic engineering and information technology, and anticipated future ones, such as molecular nanotechnology and artificial intelligence.
