CNR 2015: Lectures: Oliver Tafdrup (DNK): Multistability and Human Plasticity

Oliver Tafdrup. PhD fellow at the Department of Education, Aarhus University. My fields of interest include philosophy of technology, philosophy of anthropology and psychoanalysis. I am currently doing a thesis on transhumanism and robots - an enquiry on the transhuman fantasies that shape our interaction with and conception of humanoid robots.

My presentation will try to establish transhumanism as a philosophical concept central to the understanding of robot designing and robot interaction. Although transhumanism in the contemporary debate is associated with Anglo-Saxon authors like Max Moore and Natasha Vita-Moore, the fantasy of overcoming the human condition is as old as the ancient myths. In my presentation I will try to give an answer to the question 'What is transhumanism?' by relating it to the tradition of philosophical anthropology - the branch of philosophy interested in the metaphysical question about der Wesen des Menschen.
