ABSTRACT

In this paper, we will examine the aspects of transhuman disorder, cyborg sensitivity, posthuman disorder and robot sensitivity. The process of mediating cyborg and robot sensibilities on transhuman and posthuman disorders can secure a perspective from which to critically consider the problems that human mechanization will bring. A process of converging recognition of the otherness of transhumans and posthumans is needed. In order to overcome the otherness of transhumans and posthumans by combining inclusive liberal arts, engineering and ethical thinking must be integrated. A cyborg sensitivity is the attitude of physically disabled people accepting visual heterogeneity while fusing with technology and machines. In order to improve awareness of disabled people as cyborgs, it is necessary to establish a perspective that can embrace the physical deformation that occurs in the process of accepting technology. On the other hand, a robot sensitivity is an attitude that approves the existence of robots as objects without considering them from a human perspective. When a robot malfunctions due to a mechanical malfunction, humans must recognize the cause of the robot's malfunction and go through a process to resolve it.
