A Proclamation to Reclaim Transhumanism from Misrepresentation and Misinterpretation

At the most recent H+ Academy discussion and debate on the topic of "anti-transhumanist" writings (video below), several transhumanists suggested that we reclaim "transhumanism" from the obfuscations and misrepresentations of the original meaning of transhumanism as a philosophy and worldview.

How did this happen? Over the years, there have been many "opinions" about what transhumanism is or isn't. These opinions could be personal interpretations of the philosophy, some of which may or may not be true. While diversity is welcome and new ideas are highly valued, the philosophy of transhumanism does have principles that form the core of its meaning. With a lot of leeway for opinion, interpretations can go in directions that are counter to transhumanism. Some of the more extreme opinions have caused a flood of anti-transhumanist bias and even hate. This is not what we want.

What can we do? We need to make it very clear what transhumanism is and is not. And we need to state this publicly and make it available to everyone.

How do we take action? Creating a public statement. We call this "The Transhumanism Corrective", which clearly states what transhumanism means and identifies misconceptions and misinterpretations and addresses the most adversarial anti-transhumanist claims. It would respectfully refer to "Transhumanist Declaration" (1998).

We need to continue being aware of the changes that are taking place, and how to better communicate with the public. The draft statement has already started. To get involved, please contact us!

Anti-Transhumanists Émile P. Torres and

Alexander Thomas Take on Transhumanism

Date: December 17, 2023, at 11:00 AM PST, the H+ Academy will feature anti-transhumanists philosophers Torres and Thomas in a discussion and debate about their views. The Eventbrite page is coming soon in an update next week. We will refer to the essay True Transhumanism and the Substack article on transhumanism in this session. More to come!

Video of the recent H+ Academy where anti-transhumanist Joe Allen argues for overarching myths and religious claims and comments. The informative discussion was also entertaining, causing us to laugh rather than to outright brawl.
