Humanism, posthumanism, and compassionate love  
BibTex | RIS | RefWorks Download
This article considers a special area where pure scientism, separated from humanistic perspectives, has come to define a perspective broadly termed posthumanism, where the modification of human nature is too easily embraced as progress. The humanistic response to this scientism is equally central in this reflection. I offer a perspective on the futility of pure scientism with regard to human progress worthy of our dignity as human creatures. I conclude with an endorsement of the natural human capacity for compassionate love, for it is still the discovery of what already lies within us that dignifies what lies before us.
