Zenon ROSKAL – Astro-Humanities in the Transhumanist World

Cena brutto: 7,00 PLN za szt.

Astro-humanism is based on the idea that the human(e) civilisation on Earth must necessarily preserve and fully develop its potential. Astro-humanists assert that the human(e) civilization based on the Enlightenment ideals is an absolute value and as such a result of the evolutionary progress that marks the history of the cosmos.

Astro-humanism is discussed in the article as both the subject matter of the astro-humanities and a kind of techno-utopia. However, astro-humanism may be also seen as a most recent manifestation of the humanities. The author explains his skepticism about the concept of astro-humanism for this intellectual current hopelessly fails to accomplish the goals it has set for itself.

Keywords: astro-humanism, humanism, transhumanism, the astro-humanities, evolutionary progress, techno-utopia
