Jacques Arènes: Filiation and transhumanism

This paper presents a theory of filiation as a dynamic shape, and argues that today’s society suffers from a difficulty living within temporality. Today’s relation with time is depicted through the prism of transhumanist theories, illustrating the idea of a present which is not deployed and a future that lacks momentum, while memory itself is “perfect.” A clinical vignette is used to show the subjective impasse of “total” recall.
