Il transumanismo è un movimento filosofico e culturale internazionale che vuole che l'uomo prenda in mano l. a. propria evoluzione biologica tramite l'uso della tecnologia. L'obiettivo finale è quello di raggiungere uno stadio evolutivo ''post-umano'', in cui noi stessi e i nostri discendenti possiamo godere di una vita lunghissima e di capacit`fisiche e mentali superiori a quelle attuali.

Il libro costituisce according to il lettore un viaggio tra le affermazioni, le idee più concrete e quelle più fantasiose di questi pensatori, ed effettuer`nel contempo un “reality check”, esaminando lo stato dell’arte in ambito tecno-scientifico, andando cioè a vedere che rapporto hanno queste idee con il lavoro e le ricerche degli scienziati non esplicitamente transumanisti.
