Ontology of Freedom and Anthropology of Violence: To Transhumanity Criticism

Authors : S.N. Borisov, V.P. Rimskiy, M.A. Ignatov and V.S. Ignatova

Abstract: The critical interpretation of the radical atheistic version of transhumanity is carried out in the study. It is noted that the strategy of code conversion of magic understanding of death and sacral immortality in the techno and metaphysical project of death overcoming is the basis of all options of transhumanity. In Christianity a human being as a God’s image combines the possibilities of sublime spirituality but as a sinful being he needs correction. Exactly these ideas gave an image of “discipline of mind” and “scientific ascesis” which created the paradigm of a scientist-monk who presents at ordinary consciousness till now. The authors rise a question of how the figure of sacral death and the event of sacral immortality defined a paradox of rational thought developing for two millennium which comes to an end in “post-Christian/post-secular world” with absolutely opposite idea of profan immortality of a person. The researchers note that modern mankind “is prepared” by mass culture, media equipment and the latest technologies for redesigning of own corporality and consciousness with the perspective of “immortality finding”. Death absolutization or its demonizing together with their visible contrast meet in metaphysical status of death and a mode of total need.
