This week our guest is sociologist Steve Fuller, who has a long history exploring Transhumanism, including his 2011 book Humanity 2.0: What it Means to be Human. Past, Present and Future.
To start this conversation, we first ask: what is Humanity 1.0? What is the version of humanity we’ve had since the dawn of civilization until today? And from there, we take a journey into the details of our transformation into Humanity 2.0, into the different flavors of post-humanism and the different challenges and opportunities afforded by each. This means a deep exploration of the sociopolitical, cultural, moral, and religious changes the future has in store for us.
Steve's latest book on the subject is Nietzschean Meditations: Untimely Thoughts at the Dawn of the Transhuman Era

*Steve also asked to make a correction, as he meant 'George Church' and not 'George Graham' in regards to his thoughts on Mammoths, Neanderthals, etc
