Fontbonne University associate professor of history, philosophy and religion, Dr. Daryl Wennemann, recently had his second book, “Posthuman Personhood” published by University Press of America. In his book, Wennemann discusses the ethical challenge presented in Francis Fukuyama's book, “Our Posthuman Future,” and suggests that the traditional concept of personhood may be applied to the ethical challenge faced in the post human age.
Wennemann has been invited to present at The Posthuman: Differences, Embodiments, Performativity, a conference in Rome, Italy, in September and at Personhood Beyond the Human, a Yale University conference in December.
Wennemann has a bachelor’s and master’s degree in philosophy from St. Louis University and a Ph.D. in philosophy from Marquette University. He has been an associate professor at Fontbonne for 17 years. His previous works include a variety of scholarly articles and his book, “Applied Professional Ethics: A Developmental Approach from Use with Case Studies,” which he co-authored with Greg Beabout.
