Stefan Sorgner, a transhumanist with encyclopaedic understanding and a philosophical background, rooted in Nietzschean philosophy, tackles the toughest ethical questions of our time, such as gene editing, digital data gathering, and life-extension, with a rare sense of humour and sharp conclusions. This is one of today’s most comprehensive and detailed analyses. Highly recommended for anyone interested in transhumanist/posthumanist ideas and in these issues generally.\” N. Katherine Hayles, University of California, Los Angeles.

Transhumanism is a fascinating, all-encompassing and wide-ranging study. Sorgner’s account is free of both utopianism and the bogeyman. He makes an excellent case for us to be placed on the transhuman spectrum. It is up to us how we use technology. Sorgner’s Book is a Comprehensive Introduction to Transhumanist Thought and a Clear-Sighted Vision for its Future Realisation.\” Julian Savulescu University of Oxford
