Klichowski M., Transhumanism and the idea of education in the world of cyborgs, [In:] The Educational and Social World of a Child. Discourses of Communication, Subjectivity and Cyborgization, H. Krauze-Sikorska and M. Klichowski (Eds.), Poznan: Adam Mickiewicz University Press, 2015, pp. 431-438.

We are cyborgs. We are transhumans; transitory people that exist in a luminal phase, waiting for a transfer to the posthuman world. Our children do not need education; it is cyborgization that ensures their development. This is the idea of transhumanistic philosophy, a thoroughly (non-/anti-)pedagogic idea. In this paper, I will present basic transhumanism ideas and stress the criticism on education created within this philosophy. This text is neither a systematic study on transhumanism nor a pedagogical analysis. It is merely an attempt at showing teachers how education can be deprecated in modern philosophies that are technologically-oriented.
