Michael Anissimov explains my relative fondness for David Pearce January 21, 2011Posted by Summerspeaker in The Singularity, Transhumanism.
Over on his blog, Michael criticizes David for being slightly too empathic. The horror! You can’t let your puny human feelings get in the way of truth. Sadly, I’m too much of squishy, sentimental fleshbag to tread the path of objective knowledge. Thank superintelligence for the humanities or I wouldn’t be in college. Using that training, I’ll again point to the philosophical insights from James Hughes and echo his assessment of the worth of emotive appeals such as those employed by Aubrey de Grey.
