Humanity may be destined to disappear due to war and environmental collapse, but two groups of people think that may be a good thing. Anthropocene antihumanists believe we are the problem and for the planet’s biosphere to survive, we should welcome our species’ demise. Transhumanists believe that the only way forward is to create new forms of intelligent life that will no longer be Homo sapiens. On this episode of Inquiry, we talk with poet and literary critic ADAM KIRSCH about his new book THE REVOLT AGAINST HUMANITY: IMAGINING A FUTURE WITHOUT US.
