The challenge of transhumanism
For you, becoming immortal through science means:
- a good subject for a science fiction film or book
- soon a reality.
Whatever your opinion on the matter, know that philosophers, very high level scientists, designers of computer tools that we use every day are thinking seriously about it and have been working on it for many years. These are the transhumanists.
Even if the quest for immortality may seem unrealistic to us, the author of this book invites us to better understand transhumanist thought and the actions related to it, so that we can position ourselves on a phenomenon which is becoming increasingly magnitude in our daily lives.
We can obviously question the compatibility of such thinking with the Christian faith. This is why the analysis proposed by Yannick Imbert will help you see more clearly and present your faith in today's world. Create “improved” humans, eradicate diseases, push the limits of our body, increase our intelligence, all with a view to a better world; these aspirations necessarily resonate with the Christian faith, but what response should we give them?
