Emergent Philosophies

Emergent philosophies are those newly formed philosophies which are at, or are on the cusp of serious recognition as philosophical schools and theories. This implies a temporal criterion; for example, at the point in time which Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus were sitting down to formulate and expound their philosophies, French existentialism could have been conceived of as being an emergent philosophy; it now, of course, is no such thing, it is recognised as a particular branch of existentialism. Since currently the preponderance of the emergent philosophies are or appear to be inspired by or related to developments in technology, we have elected to deal with them within this ambit rather than in the realm of pure philosophy.

Examples of Emergent Philosophies are:

Transhumanism
Posthumanism
