"After covering the basic tenets of Transhumanism, I discuss what I take to be the most important philosophical element of the transhumanist picture -- its unique perspective on the nature and development of persons.... Examining the enhancement issue through the vantage point of the metaphysical problem of personal identity shall thereby present a serious challenge to Transhumanism. Indeed, this is a pressing issue for any argument made for or against enhancement."
