The Guardian

What is transhumanism? What is AI? Are these good developments or bad ones? How might immortality be possible? And should we even want to live forever? Get the facts and make up your own mind on these and more questions related to enhanced human potential with Future Humans, part of the new What's the Issue? series.

What does it really mean to be human? In the future, might we be forced to rethink the answer? In this fascinating book, explore these questions through topics like:
  • Prosthetics and implants
  • Plastic surgery
  • Performance drugs
  • External memory
  • Genetic modifications
  • Nanotechnology
  • Smart drugs (cognitive enhancers)
  • Cyborgs

The What's the Issue? series tackles engaging, thought-provoking subjects chosen from the headlines and public debates. What's the Issue? asks `what's all the fuss about?', presents the key facts, reviews what's at stake in each case and weighs the pros and cons. The goal of the series is to help young people understand difficult concepts, provide them with the tools to inform their own opinions and help them to see and influence changes within our society.
