For those around New York City, Dr. Post will be joining Drs. William Grassie, Francesca Rossi, Lee Silver, and Hava Tirosh-Samuelson in a roundtable event at The Helix Center, located at the New York Psychoanalytic Institute, on March 10, 2:30-4:30, 247 E. 82nd St. The topic, per below, is Transhumanism. This is open to the public.

The rapid development of technology in the modern era has inspired a movement known as transhumanism. Envisioned is a near future in which human bodies and minds will be transformed and enhanced through genomics, pharmaceuticals, nanotechnology, robotics, artificial intelligence, and any number of prosthetic devices inside and outside our bodies. Advocates also hold out the possibilities of radical life extension through rejuvenation technologies or alternately reincarnating individuals inside of computers. The proponents of transhumanism argue that the exponential growth in scientific knowledge and know-how is leading humanity to a "Singularity" sometime in the mid 21st century. In that Singularity, our technologies will cross a threshold. We will become post- or trans-humans. Required is a transdisciplinary conversation to explore the scientific possibilities and the cultural implications of this brave new world.
