Changesurfer Radio - Buddhism and Transhumanism: The Technologies of Self-Perfection


This is an interesting talk for those interested in transhumanism and its intersection with Buddhist ideas (me thinks the Buddha would not favor transhumanist interventions in our quest for self-perfection, but that's likely my personal bias). It's from 2004, but it has not lost it's relevance.

The book in the image that Dr. Hughes speaks about is Wisdom: From Philosophy to Neuroscience by Stephen Hall - and it's actually quite interesting.
