ABSTRACT. Transhumanists advocate increased funding for research to radically extend healthy lifespan and favor the development of medical and technological means to improve memory, concentration, and other human capacities. The enhancements that transhumanists advocate - longer healthy lifespan, better memory, more control over emotions, etc. - would not deprive people of the capacity for moral agency. Despite the occasional rhetorical overreaches by some of its supporters, trasnhumanism has a positive and inclusive vision for how we can ethically embrace new technological possibilities to lead lives that are better than well.
