Transhuman Principles 1.0a - DRAFT 1.0

About this document.

About this document

by Alexander Chislenko

The following is a draft Transhumanist principles that has been put forward and discussed by a group of Transhuman list members. The idea of writing the Principles belongs to Alex Bokov, who has also been a major driving force in the discussions. Other participants include Anders Sandberg, Rich Artym, Nancie Clark, Romana Machado, Sasha Chislenko, Mark A. Plus, and Christopher T. Brown.

The purpose of these Principles is to define a "consensus platform" of Transhumanism that would allow us to see what ideas and goals we have in common as a group, and to present them to people trying to understand what this transhumanism is all about.

This purpose apparently cannot be achieved by a small group of people, so the following document is just a draft that as we hope will be discussed and modified on the list, after which we can agree on the first "official" version of Principles.

The point of preliminary discussion was to spare the list members from a flood of technical details. The complete archive of the discussion is currently available at

You are welcome to take part in the discussion of the principles and read the archive of our previous discussions.

See also Joost Bonsen's Variation of these principles, which are slightly more polished.
