Posthuman Bliss: The Failed Promise of Transhumanism - Susan B. Levin →
Levin offers a good reason to reject transhumanist value assumptions and shows that a more robust picture of scientific evidence undermines the feasibility of the transhumanists' wished-for interventions. Join online using the link, or to watch in person, book a free ticket with the OSO.
Freedom, Choice, and the Unmodified Body - Professor Clare Chambers →
In this talk, Clare Chambers will argue that the concept of free choice is inadequate when it comes to our bodies. Instead, she will argue for the philosophically complex and politically significant concept of the 'unmodified body': a body that is allowed to be good enough, just as it is.
