Posthuman Studies is a multidisciplinary series devoted to high-quality analyses of and reflections on what it is to be human in an age of rapid technological, scientific, cultural and social evolution. As the boundaries between human and ‘the other’, the technological, biological and environmental, are eroded and perceptions of the ‘normal’ are challenged, recent debates have generated a range of ethical, philosophical, cultural, and artistic questions that this series seeks to address. Drawing on theory from critical posthumanism and the normative reflections of transhumanism, the series encourages constructive but rigorously critical dialogue through research monographs and edited volumes. The series publishes books on issues such as the consequences of enhancement, especially bioenhancement, transhumanist and posthumanist accounts of ‘the human,’ and their impact on culture and society. It encourages submissions from a range of different disciplines such as philosophy, sociology, literary studies, cultural studies, critical theory, media studies, bioethics, medical ethics, anthropology, religious studies, disability studies, gender studies, queer studies, critical animal studies, environmental studies, and the visual arts.
The editor of the series Stefan Lorenz Sorgner is philosophy professor at John Cabot University in Rome. He is a world-leading expert of post- and transhumanism and endorses a weak form of Nietzschean transhumanism. Regularly, he appears in leading national and international media such as the weekly magazine DIE ZEIT, the radio channel Deutschlandfunk and the TV channel ZDFinfo. He also was invited as a plenary speaker at the 3. World Humanities Forum, hosted by UNESCO, and is editor-in-chief and founding editor of the "Journal of Posthuman Studies".
