Transhumanism, Metaphysics, and the Posthuman God
Bishop, Jeffrey P
The Journal of medicine and philosophy 2010 Dec; 35(6): 700-20
After describing Heidegger's critique of metaphysics as ontotheology, I unpack the metaphysical assumptions of several transhumanist philosophers. I claim that they deploy an ontology of power and that they also deploy a kind of theology, as Heidegger meant it. I also describe the way in which this metaphysics begets its own politics and ethics. In order to transcend the human condition, they must transgress the human.
