Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Nietzsche and Transhumanism: Precursor or Enemy?, edited by Yunus Tuncel.

This essay collection deals with the question of whether Nietzsche can be seen as a precursor of transhumanism or not. Debates on the topic have existed for some years, particularly in the Journal of Evolution and Technology and The Agonist. 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.

To read a full summary of the book and to read a 30-page sample extract, which includes the table of contents, please visit the following link:

Nietzsche and Transhumanism: Precursor or Enemy? can be purchased directly from Cambridge Scholars, through Amazon and other online retailers, or through our global network of distributors. Our partners include Bertram, Gardners, Baker & Taylor, Ingram, YBP, Inspirees and MHM Limited. An e-book version will be available for purchase through the Google Play store in due course.
