Humanism, Post-Humanism and Transhumanism in the Transcultural Context of Europe and Asia
Keywords:digital technologies, artificial intelligence, human beings, non-human beings
This issue of Asian Studies delves into the challenges inherent to humanity and the human condition. Over the course of centuries, these challenges have laid the groundwork for conceptual frameworks commonly referred to as humanism, which have undergone development within a multitude of cultural contexts. Numerous analyses and critiques of these frameworks can be found in many papers contained in this issue, especially regarding the dynamics between humans and non-humans. These discussions have arisen from various regions around the globe, often labeled as post-humanism and transhumanism, among others.
