      As a retired professor, I no longer have to grade or instruct Fooyin University students, but I am happy to converse with students and colleagues about topics of mutual interest. At Fooyin University, my research and teaching in the general humanities (liberal arts) typically related to one or more of the following four areas:

● Biomedical Ethics

● Futuristic Studies

● Global History

● Interdisciplinary Philosophy

 

      I am also unretired. I continue to actively engage in research, writing, and publication. I continue to seek wisdom. I continue to cherish both academic excellence and compassionate commitment. I continue to promote life, liberty, and the exercise of flourishing. I continue to agree with Albert Camus that the death penalty is a rather harsh punishment for being born.

     

 

 

My professional experience includes the following:

Here is some additional information related to my interests − written prior to my mandatory age 65 retirement:

 

Charles Tandy, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Humanities, and a Senior Faculty Research Fellow in Bioethics, at Fooyin University (Taiwan).

 

Ø   He is author or editor of numerous publications. Since 2003, Dr. Tandy has been (and continues to be) Editor of the annual anthology, Death and Anti-Death; it has included contributions by some of the world’s leading living philosophers and scientists. Recently he also authored a book of his own essays entitled 21st Century Clues: Essays in Ethics, Ontology, and Time Travel, published in 2010 by Ria University Press and available in both hardback and paperback.

 

Ø   Along with Nobel Laureates (Sir Clive W. J. Granger; Eric S. Maskin; Wole Soyinka) and others, Dr. Tandy is a member of the Board of Advisors of the Lifeboat Foundation <http://www.lifeboat.com/ex/personality.preserver>; this includes being an ethics advisor and an educational video screenwriter for the Lifeboat Foundation. Indeed, Dr. Tandy is a board member, advisor, or consultant to a variety of charitable and educational institutions.

 

Some of Dr. Tandy’s philosophical essays blind-reviewed by his peers with approval (publication) by established academic journals include topics related to ontology, time travel, and ethics – to wit:

 

Ø   Dr. Tandy is the inventor of omniverse theory. Omniverse theory is primarily a general-philosophic, as distinguished from a physical-scientific, model of reality which nevertheless takes physical-science seriously. At first, in 2008, the ontological distinctions of the all-reality model were formulated as: mental-reality; physical-reality; and, all-reality. But in the 2009 theory, all-reality is referred to as the omniverse (hence: omniverse theory). The ontological distinctions were then articulated along the following lines. My self has a sense of personal (or self) reality that is influenced by temporal (or contingent) reality and by paragonal (or necessary) reality in an omniverse environment (the omniverse is all of reality).

 

Ø   Dr. Tandy is a pioneer in time travel and suspended animation. He is author of scholarly publications on the ethics and metaphysics of time travel and suspended animation. He has argued that sooner or later the perfection of: (1) forward-directed time travel (for example, biostasis) is “very likely”; and, (2) past-directed time travel (for example, time viewing) is “likely” (given reasonable assumptions explicitly stated by him).

 

Ø   Dr. Tandy is founder of the UP-TO Project. The UP-TO Project seeks to help achieve a prosperous and peaceful world. It is an interconnected set of proposals meant to improve terrestrial society, ban extraterrestrial weapons, and proactively structure an extraterrestrial world at stable peace fit for free persons living in SEGITs (Self-sufficient Extra-terrestrial Green-habitat Intentional Transparent [self-replicating] communities).

 

Much of Dr. Tandy’s work focuses on “big picture” issues related to the future of humanity. For example, how may our worldviews, technologies, and decisions affect future human existence? (Such profoundly important issues are under-explored and under-funded. Moreover, to the extent such explorations are funded or undertaken, the studies are often flawed by present-centric, ethno-centric, or discipline-centric thinking. In life, politics, and scholarship, our foresighted, global, and interdisciplinary perspectives are dangerously underdeveloped.)

 

Dr. Tandy is dedicated to encouraging scientific advancements while helping humanity to proactively prevent doomsday and to wisely foresee and manage catastrophic risks and possible misuse of increasingly powerful technologies, including Genetics (genetic-technology), Robotics (robotic-technology), Informatics (information-technology), and Nanotech (nano-technology), as we move towards a technological singularity.

 

In some situations it is both desirable and feasible to ban technology or to promote technology or to relinquish technological capacity in favor of the public interest, so as to prevent doomsday and wisely manage risks and opportunities. (For example, Dr. Tandy opposes action to build space-based [extraterrestrial] weapons. For example, Dr. Tandy favors action to build Self-sufficient Extra-terrestrial Green-habitat Intentional Transparent communities [SEGITs]. For example, Dr. Tandy opposes the U.S. government recently purposely posting on the internet a recipe for the 1918 flu virus. For example, Dr. Tandy opposes the U.S. government recently accidentally posting on the internet a guidebook on how to build an atomic bomb.)

 

 

Dr. Tandy's Ph.D. dissertation ("Educational Implications of the Philosophy of Kenneth Boulding"), among other papers, is available via <http://www.ria.edu/papers>.

Edgar Swank (ACS President) tells us about the website:

 

The ACS website is a smorgasbord of information about cryonics, the American Cryonics Society ("ACS"), and the ACS suspension program. Established in 1969, the American Cryonics Society is the oldest cryonics company. Besides supporting research and public information, it sponsors a
suspension program where members complete all pre-need arrangements to be frozen at death and kept in big liquid nitrogen freezer tanks (Dewars) for possible future reanimation. ACS has members enrolled to be frozen who live in a number of countries, so the reader is invited to choose the language of preference: English, French, German, Portuguese, or Spanish. Articles by prominent cryonics advocates are presented either directly on the site, or through links. Cryonics advocate Jim Yount presents a synopsis of the ACS suspension program, from the time the reader first inquires through suspension and (perhaps) reanimation in "Getting There from Here". Excerpts from Periastron, written by noted author Thomas Donaldson, Ph.D., explore the latest research, on the brain and cryobiological effects of freezing on nervous tissue. Enrollment forms may be downloaded so the reader can sign up for cryonic suspension without delay.

EUROPEAN CRYONICS SUPPORT GROUP

http://www.cryonics-europe.org

David Flude (ECSG Secretary) tells us about the website:

Here is a brief resume of the reason we formed E.C.S.G: The European Cryonics Support Group-E.C.S.G. was founded on April 1st. 2001. It's purpose is to promote ALL aspects of "Life Extension" in Europe. The emphasis is on Cryonics & the chance of a new life in the Future. It's a requirement that all the acting Officers are Members of the Cryonics Institute [C.I.] & we encourage people to join this organisation. However ordinary Membership of E.C.S.G. is free & open to everyone, even Members of other Cryonics/Life Extension organisations are welcome. 4 leading Members have purchased a 1100 square foot building in Eastbourne, Southern U.K. This is being turned into a Cryonics Facility, probably the only one outside America. This will have 4 Main purposes:

1.      Training & equipping a ParaMedic Standby Team to assist with any Member's Suspension.

2.      Carrying out the Preparation work before flying the Patient to CI in America. (Cryonic Storage in the U.K. is not anticipated for many years).

3.      Regular Meetings/ Conferences/Social activities are held here on the 2nd.Sunday of every month with larger Quarterly Meetings in February, May, August & November. A unique "E.C.S.G. Roadshow" sometimes visits other parts of the U.K.

4.      There will be a small Permanent Exhibition entitled "Life Extension in the 21st.Century". We need small submissions/photos (about 2sq.feet) from ALL Life Extension Organisations. These can include Sign Up forms for your own organisation. If accepted these will all be on permanent display.

We cordially invite ALL persons/organisations interested in Life Extension to visit the E.C.S.G. Facility & websites http://www.cryonics-europe.org http://www.cryonics.org

and join E.C.S.G.for free. Contact: David Flude-E.C.S.G. Secretary David@dflude.Freeserve.co.uk U.K. Tel.01323-411441/509836.

FALSEGODS GALLERY OF

TRANSHUMAN ARTIFACTS

Marque Cornblatt tells us about the website:

There exists in our culture the promise of technological solutions to every need, problem and issue associated with the human condition, from the basic needs of food and shelter, to more sophisticated requirements of the human animal - Happy Meals, financial credit, internet dating, artificial hearts, and MTV. Attempts to meet these needs with technology comes in a variety of forms - from AT & T
providing lengthy and complex exchanges of information without the customer ever speaking with a live operator, to computer controlled medical implants monitoring and performing an increasing number of metabolic and physiological functions in the human body. The conceptual cornerstones of "that which makes humans unique" continue to be challenged and defeated. Internally, in the case of


 

medical advancements, and externally - as demonstrated by the increasing number of "human" interactions which no longer have two humans participating. Identity and
self-awareness are no longer the exclusive terrain of human beings. We live in the age of the "transhuman" being.

PARADOXES

http://members.aol.com/kiekeben/para.html

Franz Kiekeben tells us about the website:

Paradoxes have amused people for well over two thousand years. But unlike other kinds of puzzles and brain teasers, paradoxes are not merely intellectual pastimes. They raise serious issues in philosophy, logic, and mathematics, and therefore are instructive as well. In this website, many of the most famous paradoxes, as well as a few not so famous ones, are described. Among them are Zeno's paradoxes, which appear to show that all change is an illusion, as well as paradoxes of infinity, Newcomb's paradox, Hempel's ravens, the ship of Theseus, and the paradoxes of time travel. Some solutions are also proposed, though in most cases these are
shown to be less than completely satisfactory. Paradoxes are a great place to start a more in-depth study of such topics as
space and time, identity, scientific method, and much more. But of course, they are also fun and challenging in their own right, and can be enjoyed as ends in themselves.
