The aim of the Center for Transhumanist Studies is to provide a program for lifelong learning that is immediate, accessible, and continually updating. The Introduction to Transhumanism is packed full of information for all levels of learning. Its value is that it provides a history of transhumanism, where ideas that form the worldview came from, key achievements over the decades, and future aims. Our new Knowledge Accelerator is a Master Class for those who either completed our first course or simply want to join in and work with us and share their work and skills.
This program examines the primary ideas that define the philosophy, emphasizing its views on human evolution, social change, emerging technologies, longevity sciences, healthy ecology, and the future potential of humanity. The program also seeks to innovate ideas through emerging technologies for longevity and visionary innovations such as what might the future look like and how could AI change our lives and environments. Human interactions with AI and other advances in technology might develop high-level prosthetics such as with the Future Human 2.0 body design, known as Primo Posthuman.
Our portfolio of knowledge includes learning about transhumanist research that reaches across science, technology, philosophy, ethics and the arts, to develop a practical approach responsive to our changing understanding of ourselves and the world. The cultural movement of transhumanism continues to grow worldwide and as it grows, we need the most up-to-date knowledge, skilled foresight and reflective inquiry to grow as well. How better to accomplish this goal than to study transhumanism!
COURSES #1 & #2
#1: INTRODUCTION TO TRANSHUMANISM & ADVANCED STUDIES
An in-depth course that offers a portfolio of experience from the world’s leading thinkers and provides
an historical perspective on transhumanist research, the technologies, social issues, ethical concerns, and where we are headed.
#2: MASTER CLASS. KNOWLEDGE ACCELERATOR
We use applied foresight to pinpoint your transhumanist idea. To envision where we are headed, we start with the end in mind.
With knowledge comes unlimited possibilities—from analytics, facts, frameworks, and putting ideas into action. Create!
Our methodology is applied foresight with a learning model that offers three methods in its 50-25-25 curricula: (1) 50% immersive learning environment (lectures, presentations, and resources); (2) 25% project-based iterative study; and (3) 25% open-form discussion and debate (aligned with a Weekly Studies Group and monthly H+ Academy Roundtable).
Course #1 Introduction to Transhumanism Advanced Studies
In the first course, we will show you how to sharpen the accuracy of your understanding about the content, history and core ideas of transhumanism. Rather than relying on second-hand information, we start at the center of the knowledge network with primary sources, original ideas and contributions to the philosophy.
This knowledge will help you identify facts from misleading opinion and participate in discussions, debates and advocacy of emerging innovative science and technology, human potential for today and the future.
By the end of this this course, you can inform others and contribute in ways you have never thought of before.
So, click here and let's get started!

Who are Lifelong Learners?
Our members are from across the world from diverse backgrounds and fields of study, experience, and careers. There is no minimum or maximum age! Some of us hold a Doctorate PhD and others are just starting university and college level programs, while others skipped advanced programs altogether and became entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, innovators, and artists.
Lifelong learners are from formal and informal studies and research and enjoy continuous development and advancement of knowledge and skills for their careers and personal enjoyment.
Our program includes weekly Studies Groups via Zoom, participating in the H+ Academy Roundtables, sponsorship for project-based initiatives, and opportunities to meet our faculty advisors and well-known advocates in their respective industries.
Discussion & Debate
Transhumanist Studies invites its team to participate in the monthly and bi-monthly H+ Academy Roundtables. Topics cover advances in Science, Technology, Philosophy and the Arts.
Projects & Ideas
Prototypes for games, virtual worlds, and ideas that can be collaborative projects about longevity, AGI, and an array of visional stories about the future!
Enjoying exchanging ideas from different countries on life extension helps build worldwide advocacy and learn how others are thinking about aging interventions.
