Intentions of transhumanism in the convergent technologies era

Cover Page

Abstract


The article discusses the issues of transhumanism, which draws its inspiration from the development perspectives of NBIC-convergent technologies. Such ideas are getting widespread nowadays. The potential possibility of human’s corporality and conscience transformation, as well as the possibilities to dispose of human life supplied and stimulated by science and technology, impart qualitatively different aspects to ontological constants of a human and personality problem. In this connection the problem of identification and setting of real limits to the use of scientific and technological possibilities of technology remains topical.
