Transhumanism

Transhumanism is an intellectual and cultural movement supporting the use of science and technology to enhance human mental and physical abilities and aptitudes, and overcome what it regards as undesirable and unnecessary aspects of the human condition, such as disability, suffering, disease, and aging. Described by some as the world's most dangerous idea and by others as a "movement that epitomizes the most daring, courageous, imaginative, and idealistic aspirations of humanity". (more…)

Futures studies (colloquially called "futures" by many of the field's practitioners) seeks to understand what is likely to continue and what could plausibly change. Part of the discipline thus seeks a systematic and pattern-based understanding of past and present, and to determine the likelihood of future events and trends. (more…)
