Abstract: X-Phi 2: True Self behind the Face of the Future. Recent debates about the problem of human enhancement eventually have to address the question of personal identity. The aim of this paper is to draw attention to a different aspect of personal identity that arises with the experimental approach towards philosophy. Various studies point to the fact that the folk concept of personal identity is socially determined and that the preservation of the true self depends on the positive moral traits that figure strongly in interpersonal relationships. What is more, the concept of the “essential moral self” that stands behind these findings shares certain crucial characteristics with the folk concept of the soul. Our aim here is to use our own research to support the previous findings and further demonstrate how people see the “true self” of a person. We will briefly mention our interview study with over 200 children about personal identity, which supports the “essential moral self” hypothesis. Then we will introduce our online questionnaire study on dualistic intuitions with nearly 3000 adult respondents, which supports the hypothesis that the “essential moral self” bears connection to the folk concept of the soul. This gives us a certain clue as to how to approach the question of human enhancement and transhumanism. If what we ultimately care about is the moral core of the person (a “soul”) which is capable of interpersonal connections, this is what we should strive to save and protect in the process of gradual transformation of the human nature.
