Editorial Reviews

Review

“Edited by the internationally acclaimed founders of the philosophy and social movement of transhumanism, The Transhumanist Reader is an indispensable guide to our current state of knowledge of the quest to expand the frontiers of human nature.”  (LIS Trends, 8 March 2013)

Review

“We are in the process of upgrading the human species, so we might as well do it with deliberation and foresight. A good first step is this book, which collects the smartest thinking available concerning the inevitable conflicts, challenges and opportunities arising as we re-invent ourselves. It's a core text for anyone making the future.”

—Kevin Kelly, Senior Maverick for Wired


“Transhumanism has moved from a fringe concern to a mainstream academic movement with real intellectual credibility. This is a great taster of some of the best emerging work. In the last 10 years, transhumanism has spread not as a religion but as a creative rational endeavor.”

—Julian Savulescu, Uehiro Chair in Practical Ethics, University of Oxford


The Transhumanist Reader is an important, provocative compendium critically exploring the history, philosophy, and ethics of transhumanism. The contributors anticipate crucial biopolitical, ecological and planetary implications of a radically technologically enhanced population.”

—Edward Keller, Director, Center for Transformative Media, Parsons The New School for Design

 “This important book contains essays by many of the top thinkers in the field of transhumanism.  It’s a must-read for anyone interested in the future of humankind.”

—Sonia Arrison, Best-selling author of 100 Plus: How The Coming Age of Longevity Will Change Everything
