I just finished a fairly quick read-through of this article.  Some  
misquotes of data, but it is perceptible in taking on Haraway's use of  
cyborg to soften the blow of transhumanist technologies. Nonetheless,  
it is quite beclouding.  Would anyone like to comment on the last  

"... transhumanism is at root not grounded simply in the embracing of  
technological promise (as say Kaku suggests) but rather in a radical  
demythologised lifeworld, incapable of supporting moral discourse."
