Transcendent Men: Hegel and Posthumanism (pt. 2)

We continue with the second podcast in the series about Hegel and Posthumanism. This time we explore the way Hegel tried to solve the problem of alienation of subject and object, i.e. the alienation of man and reality.

The method he applied to accomplish this is what is called Hegelian dialectics.

Hegel claims that rift existing between man and the world can be bridged by historical development of consciousness through finite number of intermediary stages resulting in absolute identity of knowledge and being, i.e. absolute knowledge.

This idea is something quite analogous to posthumanist's attempt to transcend humanity in absolute power of technology.

As Hegel’s name for some reason pops up every now and then in “alternative” information nodes, there is a need to provide a substantial explanation of who Hegel was and what his dialectics was all about. While popular moniker “Hegelian dialectics” as social engineering is meaningless, there is a sinister side to Hegel’s project of absolute science, which brings him surprisingly close to “transcendent men” of our days: posthumanists.
