Whither the Human Species?


One significant legacy track of Teilhard de Chardin is transhumanism, the movement concerned with the future of the human race.  Teilhard in his last decade thought and wrote about this a lot and coined the word “Ultrahuman.”  Teilhard’s main focus was the evolution of consciousness.  Today’s transhumanists tend to be more interested in the evolution of humanity in relation to technology.    The article linked here raises an issue little discussed in transhumanist circles, but of great concern to those whose agenda also includes human dignity, poverty, and social justice.  This includes The Teilhard de Chardin Project.
