Description

Inhuman Thoughts is a philosophical exploration of the possibility of increasing the physiological and psychological capacities of humans to the point that they are no longer biologically, psychologically, or socially human. The movement is from the human through the trans-human, to the post-human. Seidel argues that such an evolution would be of positive value on the whole.show more

Review quote

Seidel's Inhuman Thoughts is even more provocative than its title...Seidel's argument for post-humanity is airtight...Seidel's proposal is extremely useful as a tool for thinking...about the proper grounding for an ethical theory. Metapsychology Online Reviews, January 2009show more
