Nietzschean Meditations takes its inspiration from the version of Nietzsche that was popular before the Second World War, which stressed the ‘Zarathustrian’ elements of his thought as the harbinger of a new sort of being – the Übermensch. The book updates the image of this creature to present a version of ‘transhumanism’ that breaks with the more precautionary and pessimistic approaches of humanity’s future in contemporary ‘posthumanist’ thought. Fuller follows Nietzsche in discussing deeply and frankly the challenging issues that aspiring transhumanists face. They include their philosophical and especially theological roots, the implications of transhumanism for matters of life and death, and whether any traces of classical humanity will remain in the ‘transhuman’ being.

“Steve Fuller is the most serious academic talking about transhumanism and the future of humanity. Anyone interested in transhumanism should study with him.” (Zoltan Istvan, Founder of the US Transhumanist Party and 2016 US presidential candidate)
