We are moving into a strange new world of “enhanced humans,” or even “post-humans.” In other words, a transhuman world. Science is now on the verge of re-defining the human species, which could happen within our lifetimes. Richard Dolan will explain the main developments for us to track and will bring a counter-argument to the utopian claims that transhumanism will solve the problems of the world: there is perhaps an equal or greater danger that the coming transhumanism will result in a permanent biologically-based caste system.
