Max More and Natasha Vita-More, eds. The Transhumanist Reader: Classical and Contemporary Essays on the Science, Technology, and Philosophy of the Human Future (Oxford: Wiley-Blackwell, 2013).
A fantastic and much needed introduction to transhumanism. Edited by two leading extropians (Max and Natasha Vita-More), both of whom remain prominent modern transhumanist figures, this volume provides a sampling of some of the key transhumanist documents and texts from the 1990s onwards. Max More contributes a brief but concise history of organised transhumanism, which goes a long way to plugging many of the gaps, and correcting the historical misattributions, in existing scholarly commentary. Essays by More, Nick Bostrom and Marvin Minsky are highlights. This book is essential reading for all scholars of transhumanism, and has more than a few compelling nuggets for the trans-curious to peruse.
