Transhumanism is the English term, however it perceived in slightly different fashions depending on the language and culture.


The English language dominates the movement as whole, as to American organisations such as the IEET, Humanity+ and many other influental organisations and individuals. Many European transhumanists interact with the movement in English or via their smaller national movements in their native languages.

The significant Russian element grounded in cosmism are led by organisations such as the Russian Transhumanist Movement.

Activity across the Spanish and Portuguese speaking world is headed by Asociación Transhumanista.

The leader of Kazakhstan, Nursultan Nazarbayev is increasingly working with Russia in longevity research.[1]

'Transhumanism' is a much weaker brand in places like China, Korea and Japan, though such countries have strong futurist cultures and political systems that may be even more H+ compatible than the west's.


A (slightly out of date) list of Humanity+ chapters is indicative of the state of transhumanism internationally.
