Inclusion In The Context Of "Human Enhancement" In The Transhumanist Paradigm

Abstract

The article analyzes the understanding of inclusion in accordance with the "human enhancement" project in transhumanism. The difficulty of combining and implementing inclusion and inclusive education is fixed, in particular in the case of the successful introduction of "human enhancement" into the digital society. Transhuman and posthuman are equally thought of as approaching the "superhuman-deity" standard, thanks to Human Enhancement Technologies. The question arises whether it is possible to combine the achievements of the modern world and, in particular, inclusion with the projects of the future society? For an answer, it is necessary to understand the interpretation of the person, "human enhancement", and inclusion in transhumanism. Transhumanists have created a set of "convenient" principles and concepts for the implementation of "human enhancement", such as: "transhuman", "posthuman", "controlled evolution", "exponential thinking", "hedonistic imperative", "morphological freedom" , "Primo Posthuman" and others, which are embedded in the NBIC convergence program. However, the analysis of the semantic content of even the identical concept of "freedom" or terms that include the concept of "person" speaks of their fundamental opposition and incompatibility. An inclusive approach presupposes the upholding of the value of a person (everyone, any person), and transhumanism prioritizes progress and innovation, where a person is a means, a transitional link or an imperfect construct that needs a radical transformation.
