"This Reader is a perfect guide to get into bleeding-edge philosophy."
Nicolás Rojas Cortés, Faculty of Philosophy and Humanities, University of Chile

"The Reader can be used not only as a textbook in higher education, but also by all researchers and students in these fields as reference. […] I highly recommend it to everyone who is interested in these movements and those works from which excerpts are included in it."
Yunus Tuncel, The New School, New York

"Since Sorgner, Sampanikou, Stasienko and their colleagues, almost singlehandedly, are crafting and advancing this discipline through its forming stages, when they publish a book with handpicked canonic texts, it should be treated as a landmark."
Carmel Vaisman, The Cohn Institute and The Multidisciplinary Program in the Humanities, Tel Aviv University

"What makes the Posthuman Studies Reader interesting and exciting is the facility to have in one volume the basic ideas and essentials of transhumanism, critical posthumanism and metahumanism. The reader provides in a condensed version an introduction to posthuman studies for both academic and nonacademic audiences."
Leo Igwe, Department of Religious Studies, University of Cape Town

"The Posthuman Studies Reader serves as a comprehensive guide and/or manual of an evolving and expanding Post/Trans/Meta Humanism discourse. […] because of the clarity of organization by the editors and the highest scholarship of the writers, the collection was able to drive the interest of readers a notch or two higher."
Joseph Reylan B. Viray, Polytechnic University of the Philippines

« Originale par son point de vue, bien réalisée, cette anthologie rendra service au lecteur désireux d’étudier le transhumanisme et le posthumanisme par-delà les clichés dont nous abreuvent les nombreux ouvrages francophones sur le sujet. »
    - Stanislas Deprez in Revue philosophique de la France et de l'étranger
