Nietzsche and Transhumanism

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

This book combines existing papers, from these journals, with new material, to highlight some of the important issues surrounding this argument. 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.
