Abstract

Intended as a step of a general attempt to grasp further philosophical meanings/implications of the Posthuman galaxy, which without much doubt still deserves many insights, this article argues the case for a Posthuman Humanism. Moving from the consideration that emerging ideas within the posthuman debate as crucial -i.e. openness and non-exhaustiveness, interrogations on borders recalling the urgency of the rethinking overall of the human even before the sitting of prefixes denoting overshoots- can be traced/identified in Michel Serres's philosophy/anthropology of hominescence, the article heuristically engages a philosophical comparison/dialogue with what Serres calls objective dimension of hominescence, that's to say new human's links to the world that precisely point to a new Humanism, federative of nature and culture. Through analyzing Serresian theming of this anthropological shift and its cogency of the signing of a symbiotic human-natural contract in the context of a so-called political ecology, the article reads them as a germinal nucleus of a posthuman Humanism. So that by leveraging on such theoretical foundations it makes the case of a federative, hybrid, anthropo-decentrist, decentralized, finally authentic Humanism, which can represent the post- of any anthropocentric, exclusivist, essentialist humanism; in other words, a posthuman Humanism.
