Olga Vinogradova participated in the 11th Beyond Humanism Conference in Lille
IGITI Research Assistant Olga Vinogradova has participated in the 11th Beyond Humanism Conference, held on July 9–12 in Lille, France. Speaker's paper was devoted to ethical discourses engendered by the counter-arguments and risks of progress, human enchancement and the society of transhumanism.
Each year, the Beyond Humanism Conference discusses issues related to the development of transhumanist technologies, posthumanist thought, art and philosophy. This time, the main aim of the conference was to initiate discussions between representatives of various directions of transhumanism and critical posthumanism, analyze current trends in the development of the future of humanity and human place in a changing world, and also identify how the key tasks of modern science are problematized within these philosophical directions.
