Abstract

This hot-off-the-press publication On Transhumanism by Stefan Lorenz Sorgner operates as a precise navigation tool through dense epochal complexities in which the long-established notion of human as an exclusive onto-epistemic benchmark gets thoroughly re-examined. The book offers a wide range of autonomous socio-philosophical conceptual and ethical takes on the contemporary issues drawn from the transhumanist repertoire, some of which are considered quite contentious. This is a book on philosophical Transhumanism and its conceptual correlatives, Posthumanism and Humanism, displayed in high variety of their multiple arrangements. It is written from the perspective of a sui generis metahumanist reasoning, a position that provides an in(ter)dependent horizon that neither uncritically celebrates the most controversial transhumanist ideas nor simply rejects them on the basis of mere neophobia and/or indisputable conservative morality.
