More general consideration of the future. The mankind is approaching the singularity moment when Artificial Intellect will equal or more strong to the human one. Technically it is almost done and quantum computer and the progress in the neuro-networks is amazing. So we need to concentrate once more on the deep anthropology, on the question what is human? What that means now? And specially in front of Artificial Intelligence. That is the main challenge. The Artificial Intelligence and post-humanism (aka trans-humanism) is the logical step in the ideological triumph of liberal ideology based on the identification of human being with individual.
The world of modernity is a dead world. But it still is death. So it has died, but not until the end. Once there is something to die for. Something in him has not died, negatives and mediocrities, once this environment is tearing… Environment of modernity has its own dynamics something in her agony, close to death, but still enlivened by sporadic bursts last quanta of life. These remnants of life for a New time more and more compressed.
The nineteenth and early twentieth century saw the emergence of a controversial school of Russian thinkers, led by the philosopher Nikolai Fedorov and united in the conviction that humanity was entering a new stage of evolution in which it must assume a new, active, managerial role in the cosmos. In the first account in English of this fascinating tradition, George M. Young offers a dynamic and wide-ranging examination of the lives and ideas of the Russian Cosmists.
Now we have come to the final phase of humanity’s liberation from its limitations. In the West, there is already no longer any religion, political hierarchies, normal families, or State in the fullest sense of the word. All borders have been completely crossed, i.e., transgressed. Now all that remains is one final step: overcoming the boundaries of the human species itself. This is H+ – the last word of liberalism. Transhumanism is no bizarre side product of technological development – it is the logical end of the modern age. According to Modernity, we were supposed to reach the age of cyborgs, hybrids, mutants, and chimeras, and now we have arrived.
