UTW1001E : From Human to "Posthuman"

This U-Town module considers the question of what it is to be human in relation to the possiibilities of transforming ourselves through genetic, neuro-cognitive or cybernetic technologies. The module  examines how significantly  indiciduals, populations or the entire human species have to be changed  to warrant the use of the term "posthuman" in describing them. How desirable would it be to transcend certain of our current limitations or to acquire completely new capabilities?  You will explore these questions threough a critical examination of viewpoints expressed in schorly literature as well as in media.
