Southern Oregon University Sociologist Worries Over Our Transhuman Future

We stand on the brink of the human enhancement revolution. Sound good? It might be, says Southern Oregon University sociologist Echo Fields, who will give a presentation Wednesday on the "transhuman" movement — or it could be, as one scientist called it, "the world's most dangerous idea." Fields notes the view among scientists that "it's going to happen anyway," so "we'd better have a frank and open political debate about it and try to guide it." Asked her take on these developments as a sociologist, Fields said, "I'm a little gloomy. If you marry technology to the logic of multinational capitalism, then add governments and their military power, then I'm not sure we can stop what's happening. We're addicted to our gadgets and the wheels are in motion. It's coming, and it might not end well.
