Beyond humanism; trans- and posthumanism; v.5


In 11 papers from an October 2009 conference in Belgrade, scholars of philosophy offer some contemporary perspectives on the potential of Darwin's theory of evolution for present and future generations. Among the topics are the responsible self, enhancement and evolution, an ethical assessment of human genetic enhancement, technology as a new theology from "New Atheism" to technotheism, evolutionary theory applied to institutions with an case study of the impact of Europeanization on higher education policies, and DNA and the evolution of motifs in Beethoven's greatest piano work "The Hammerklavier Sonata." There is no index.
