- The article discusses the basic postulates and educational programs of transhumanism as a technological direction, focused on the near future, given clear parameters. At the present stage, supporters of transhumanism simultaneously carry out the tasks of promoting their teachings, expanding the circle of supporters and sympathizers, including through educational projects: educational programs, summits, leadership extensive, webinars, family education. Institutionally, for over 12 years, a project of a private commercial “elite” university has been implemented: the University of the Singularity and its “chapter” branches in different countries. Graduates of educational programs demonstrate the ideological unity of “exponential thinking”, the identical perception of the past of humanity, clear attitudes towards vision of the future (the era of the Singularity), forms of communication, ethical standards, methods and models of educational programs. Digitalization, among other modern technological world trends, plays the role of an integrating methodological and organizational principle, which, according to supporters of transhumanism, will attract more creative, influential and intelligent leaders and businessmen to it.
