We Have Always Been Cyborgs : Digital Data, Gene Technologies, and an Ethics of Transhumanism, Paperback / softback Book

We Have Always Been Cyborgs : Digital Data, Gene Technologies, and an Ethics of Transhumanism Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The concept of transhumanism emerged in the middle of the 20th century, and has influenced discussions around AI, brain–computer interfaces, genetic technologies and life extension.

Despite its enduring influence in the public imagination, a fully developed philosophy of transhumanism has not yet been presented.

In this new book, leading philosopher Stefan Lorenz Sorgner explores the critical issues that link transhumanism with digitalization, gene technologies and ethics.

He examines the history and meaning of transhumanism and asks bold questions about human perfection, cyborgs, genetically enhanced entities, and uploaded minds.

Offering insightful reflections on values, norms and utopia, this will be an important guide for readers interested in contemporary digital culture, gene ethics, and policy making.
