Film dystopias and transhumanism: The cyborg: From the film myth to reality
Univeristy of Niš, Faculty of Philosophy
Keywords: cyborg; dystopias; transhumanism; seventh art; film; mass media
Abstract
Film art anticipated many humanistic ideas which have only recently become the actual subject of consideration. The seventh art has pointed to many ethical dilemmas and controversies that the humanity encounters when facing different challenges of transhumanism. The Hollywood films exemplify this issue most adequately in the example of the cyborg. By creating dystopian works related to cyborgs (films, TV series, graphic novels) and profiting from them, the media industry uses a mixture of curiosity and fear evident in modern people faced with an increasing development of technologies, which alters their social surroundings. Within the social reality, due to the development of technologies, the cyborg has, as a media phenomenon, over a period of time, become a part of the present and of the immediate future. We live in the times in which we question and examine the former definitions and identity of humans in the light of a new hybrid identity of the cyborg as a direct mixture of man and machine.
