Francis Fukuyama and A Posthuman Future

Francis Fukuyama

US philosopher and political economist Francis Fukuyama, author of Our Posthuman Future: Consequences of the Biotechnology Revolution (2002), is most famous for his original "The End of History" (1989) thesis.

Fukuyama later came to acknowledge that biotechnology will increasingly allow human beings to control their own evolution and become post-human.

Fukuyama is a vehement critic of transhumanism (H+), allegedly "The World’s Most Dangerous Idea", arguing that the transhumanist movement represents a threat to liberal democracy.
