Globalisation and the Transhumanist Identities

Abstract

Globalisation has introduced a variety of changes to the different aspects of human life such as an individual’s identity. These changes can be embodied in the variables one depends on to define the self or the group to which they belong. While it is believed that an advanced stage of increased globality has made people more similar, it is also a common argument that globalisation has significantly foregrounded differences to render us more distinct and unique in contrast to others. This analytical essay explores the relationship between globalisation and processes of hyper-hybridisation within transnational affiliations represented in the Transhumanist movement.

Keywords: Globalisation; Identity; Transhumanism; Hyper-hybridisation; Intellectual beings.
