More than 4 weeks availability
Immortal Passage: Philosophical Speculations on Posthuman Evolution defends the posthuman hypothesis: that descendants of present humans, leading lives of indefinitely extended duration, and having significantly altered biological, psychological, and social characteristics, will have lives superior to those of current humans. A detailed speculative account of these lives, with attention to philosophical issues raised by such an account, presents the major philosophical challenge of Immortal Passage.
Asher Seidel is associate professor of philosophy at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
