Reviews

Robert Frodeman has written the most searching and serious philosophical critique of transhumanism, which does justice to many misgivings surrounding the movement. Advocates of transhumanism need to respond sensibly to Frodeman's many challenges. - Steve Fuller, University of Warwick, UK For a long time, I've had misgivings about the transhumanist project. This book has helped me understand why. This is a deep and important book. We owe it to ourselves to take seriously as we rush headlong into a hyper-technological future. - David Livingstone Smith, University of New England, USA


Humanity and nature have been defended on many sides from the onslaught of science and technology, but in this book Frodeman expertly confronts what is arguably the great challenge of them all, transhumanism. - Steve Fuller, Author of Humanity 2.0, University of Warwick, UK. For a long time, I've had misgivings about the transhumanist project. This book has helped me understand why. This is a deep and important book. We owe it to ourselves to take seriously as we rush headlong into a hyper-technological future. - David Livingstone Smith, University of New England, USA
