Kazimierz KRZYSZTOFEK – On the Human Being, Society, and Technologies: Between Humanism, Transhumanism and Posthumanism

Cena brutto: 7,00 PLN za szt.

The article addresses the issue of how the efficacy of acting human subjects is accomplished in a knowledge society. Among the most relevant questions scrutinized in the paper is that of whether better tools determine one’s better capability of control over one’s actions as well as increase one’s capability of anticipating their consequences, or whether it is rather the case that one’s intentions do not necessarily determine the occurrence of the intended consequences, since the consequences of an action might be alienated from its agent.

Translated by Dorota Chabrajska

Keywords: humanism, transhumanism, posthumanism, agency, subjectivity, digital technologies
