The turn of the twenty-first century and the subsequent continuous emergence of implications related to technological advancement have brought a crisis into the heart of the humanities. Its etymological origin, humanism, a philosophical stance shaped during and perpetuated by the Enlightenment, is becoming more and more redundant. An ecological emergency and advancements in science have created a need for a renewed understanding of subjectivity as well as of humanity’s place in and relation to the rest of the world. The reviewed volume exposes the timeliness and unquestionable relevance of posthumanism in relation to the needs created by contemporary reality, both within and without the academy and the humanities. Beyond merely philosophizing, Danielle Sands explores the practical applications of posthuman theory in the field of bioethics by including nine original, insightful, and interdisciplinary chapters that aspire to build a better present and a better future for all.
