Are we prepared to accept a human species that's been technologically improved through a radical transformation of its natural conditions? Is the irreversible transition from human to post-human already taking place? The authors, advocating a distinctly 21st-century humanism, offer an open and critical introduction to this technological shift, to transhumanism, and to the incorporation of the human body into emerging technologies such as nano and biotechnology, artificial intelligence, and robotics.
