Details

What is transhumanism, and why does it matter?

The short answer is that transhumanism represents the most far-reaching development of humanism which we are presently capable of. So it matters because, if humanism matters, then developing humanism to its extent must matter a very great deal.

But of course, it's not quite that simple! Ken Roberts will be speaking on the history, the goals, and the questions asked by transhumanists, exploring the ultimate potential of human beings and what that implies for questions about ethics, justice, values, and how to co-exist together on this planet.
