Gurevich P.S. The cybernaut as a symbol of the global world

Published in journal "SENTENTIA. European Journal of Humanities and Social Sciences", 2014-2 in rubric "Philosophy", pages 98-108.

Resume: The author discusses anthropological aspects of modern globalization. He shows that comprehension of global processes requires analysis of the problems of human nature. An attempt is made at creating a generalized image of man that will be a symbol of the nascent world. On the other hand, the author criticizes the projects of deanthropologization, debiologization of man. Traditional questions of philosophical anthropology, such as is man a creator or a creation?, who or what is the demiurge of the modern world?, is the human body really a basis for human identification?, is human nature capable of extreme openness and infinite transformation?, prove to be topical again. The author uses the method of philosophical anthropology to analyze these problems. He shows that this philosophical trend, for the decades of its existence, has improved its approaches to the issues of philosophical comprehension of man and is based on these original traditions. The novelty of the approach is not related only to restoration of the mystical tradition of remaking man but also to critical consideration of the whole European experience of reconstruction of the personality. The article evaluates the technical project of remaking man from critical positions, sets forth arguments that permit to rationally approach the problem and its basic foundations.

Keywords: global world, man, cybernaut, identity, transformation, nature, genetics, philosophy, philosophical anthropology, symbol.
