Kris Notaro ponders which philosophical systems will serve us best in our posthuman future. I bet you can’t guess which one he prefers!
The IEET officially promotes the idea of technoprogressivism which has in common with normative intellectualism the idea that science and technological knowledge is valued. However I personally believe in existential ethics mixed with utilitarianism and technoprogressivism for human beings. Existential ethics is a reality for any free person because; as Sartre put it “Existence precedes and rules essence.” Existential ethics will, however, be weaned out in a logical scientific posthuman world because posthuman’s will have the intellectual capacity to use normative intellectualism, utilitarianism and technoprogressivism to calculate the correct virtuous action.
Bioethics is controversial.
No one endorses the ideas or concepts explored here, not even me.
You will develop a strong opinion about something you find here. I want to hear it. Philosophy is a conversation.
