What is Transhumanism?
“Transhumanists see humankind as a bridge to another place, in this way creating an imagined bright future while disparaging the present as inferior,” said Brian Green, director of technology ethics at Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University. Green, who approaches transhumanism as a religious issue, said that transhumanism is fundamentally about putting faith in technology to solve humanity's problems.
While it’s important to note that the movement is ideologically diverse, “some transhumanists — not all — are thus anti-human in a lot of ways,” Green said, “which is a critical weakness.”
