Human-Nature-Machine Relationships From The Perspective of Theological Ecofeminisms
Human-Nature-Machine Relationships from the Perspective of Theological Ecofeminisms
Abstract This paper compares the (Christian) ecofeminist ethic of relationality - the interconnectedness of all beings (human and natural non-human) in the web of life (interconnected subjectivity) - with the transhumanist ethic of human enhancement and technological singularity. Moreover, a critique of transhumanism and its (possible) abuse of technological power - over human and nature - is elaborated, as the "new" superintelligence could drive accelerated technological progress and leave ecofeminist ecocentric egalitarianism behind, while moving towards posthumanism as a goal.
