Day: April 11, 2012

Prof.Steve Fuller is the Auguste Comte Chair in Social Epistemology at the University of Warwick. Drawing on his new book, Humanity 2.0: What It Means to Be Human Past, Present and Future, he will consider the multiple sources of recent interest in the effects new philosophies, technologies and beliefs have on what it means to be human.

He will discuss how in some cases this interest in a ‘trans-‘ or ‘post-‘ human future lies in finding more scientifically adventurous means for realizing classically humanistic aims, but in other cases it is traceable to an abandonment of humanity as a category for understanding and even governing the world.
