The Hybrid Hominin: A Renewed Point of Departure For Philosophical Anthropology.
Reason for embargo
The goal of this paper will be nothing short of offering a new point of departure for philosophical anthropology (and thereby for philosophy and the human sciences in general). The crux of this effort will be developed around a novel concept of the ‘Hybrid Hominin’ and an exploration of its descriptive and normative implications. The intentions will not be to jettison prior insights from philosophical anthropology but rather to recontextualize them in a way that both preserves and yet further mobilizes their insights. Indeed the very measure of the success of this enterprise will be precisely its ability to bring the legacy of philosophical anthropology to further fruition and in the context of dialogues with some of the contributors to this valuable new collection.
