Trans-humanism as an Anthropological Problem

What is the individual? From the scientific point of view, the individual is a material object – body. In Christian anthropology the individual is a created being, he is a material object – body, and he is a person – subject, transcending the material world of objects at the same time. Philosophy gives different definitions of individual but in the mid-twentieth century the rejection of the human being, as a subject and as an existing being, was openly proclaimed for the first time by structuralism – the founder of trans-humanism. The aim of the philosophical concept of trans-humanism is to liberate the human race from the inherent biological limitations. Modern scientific and technological progress with its opportunity to reformat the human nature almost reached this concept. In more detail April, 19

In the Soviet Union the relations between the diocesan Bishop and the civil authorities were regulated via the Сommissioner of the Council for the Russian Orthodox Church Affairs. We can observe the development of these relations by the example of Metropolitan Veniamin (Fedchenkov) who consistently headed three Bishop’s Offices in the USSR in 1948 – 1958.

This paper represents an attempt to reopen the pending file of Christian division. Salient to this paper is the idea that it is the process of the Trinitarian differentiation between West and Orient that created the hiatus grown ever more apparent to date. It started seemingly at the time of Augustine and culminated in the experience of the ultimate alienation of Christian creed at the time of Gregory Palamas when Westerners and Orientals propounded distinctive creeds contravening each other. It is up to debate whether holding onto doctrines or rather leveling any dogmatic distinction should allow the modern Christians to make a headway into the world of Christian unity. One thing is clear—the Christian identity seems to be on the verge of extinguishing if faith is blunted with doubts, uncertainties and contradictions.
