I would like to invite your contributions to the Special Issue “Cyberphenomenology and the Technominds Revolution”.
This Special Issue will be devoted to the challenges expected from two close, and possibly combined, events: a) the upgrading of human minds and bodies (i.e., cyborgs) thanks to technological extensions and bodily implementations, and b) the advent of complex machines with consciousness and emotional interactions.
These mixed agents will require a new view on the notion of ‘body’, ‘nature’, ‘evolution’, ‘moral’, ‘reality’, ‘social sphere’, ‘experience’, and ‘reality/virtuality/augmented reality’. It implies not only an epistemic or moral revolution, but will need a new view on the meaning of ‘Being’.
