Abstract "Misreading Brave New World" by Curtis D. Carbonell Conservative political historian, Francis Fukuyama, claims Transhumanism is the world's most dangerous idea. Moreover, his bioconservatism, clearly articulated in Our Posthuman Future: Consequences of the Biotechnology Revolution, argues that science and technology may present devastating problems for human beings. However, Fukuyama begins his critique with a misreading of Aldous Huxley's seminal dystopian text, Brave New World, by claiming "that Huxley was right, that the most significant threat posed by contemporary biotechnology is the possibility that it will alter human nature and thereby move us into the 'posthuman' stage of history (7). Fukuyama ties his thesis to a blinkered misreading of Brave New World, one that sees only Huxley's critique of the World State and its soma, its free-sex, its Bokanovsky process, etc., as the primary dangers in the novel. This article foregrounds such simplistic, bioconservative readings of Brave New World by demonstrating that Huxley also clearly critiques the primitive world of the John the Savage in which disease, senescence, irrationality, etc., plague the human condition. Huxley sees problems with both worlds, John the Savage's and Mustapha Mond's, without offering a solution. Moreover, this article clearly states its assumptions that we have never been posthuman, that technology and the human are false binaries, and that "human nature" is an artificial ontological category that, if anything, is highly performative and dynamic and rooted in our behavior as social beings. This article celebrates the human as a philosophical category for its multivalence and its ability to adjust and adapt and to represent human beings as active agents within and a part of nature. Finally, this article demonstrates that narratives of the posthuman are just that, narratives, and are often taken from science fiction, philosophy, and other speculative adventures in human expression.
