Committed to the improvement of the human condition, transhumanism is rooted in the humanism of Enlightenment with its focus on progress. At the same time, it exceeds classical humanist objectives of educational and cultural refinement by inquiring into the possibilities offered by technology to overcome human nature’s biological limitations. While inseparably linked to emergent technologies’ impact on human nature, transhumanist thinking is multi- and interdisciplinary; it involves not only the natural sciences, but also the human sciences by addressing the social and ethical concerns of technologically mediated human enhancement.
