Nietzsche and Transhumanism

This essay collection deals with the question of whether Nietzsche can be seen as a precursor of transhumanism or not.

The collection addresses a variety of issues to show whether or not there is a close connection between transhumanist concerns for progress and technology and Nietzsche’s ideas.
