Liberal transhumanism is the mainstream political transhumanist position that stands in opposition to dystopian transhumanism in general and fascist transhumanism and oligarchic transhumanism more specifically.

Tenants include consensual use of technological enhancement by informed individuals as well as a non-authoritarian approach toward the application of technology in society.

Liberal transhumanism is a facet of individualistic Libertarian transhumanism as well as the more socially-oriented ideas of Technoprogressivism, Democratic Transhumanism and Social Futurism.

Anarchistic transhumanism's support for individual rights and freedoms places it within this idea.
