Introduction to Transhumanism

Transhumanism is an international cultural and intellectual movement with an eventual goal of fundamentally transforming the human condition by developing and making widely available technologies to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities.

Transhumanist thinkers study the potential benefits and dangers of emerging technologies that could overcome fundamental human limitations, as well as the ethics of developing and using such technologies.


This 10 minute video summarizes the three key elements of Transhumanist philosophy-- logevity, intelligence, and wellbeing.

Thanks to the British Institute of Posthuman Studies for such a concise and well produced introductory video!
