I want a more in depth analysis here. I am pulling this I wrote in the other topic, to start us off:
On what philosophical conceptual or meaningful basis does transhumanism pose its progression? Nietzsche's basis is quite clear: man is more ape even than ape, the philosopher is more human even than human. Nietzsche's humanity is a beautiful jewel that he polishes with all of his criticisms of humanity. Pessimism (e.g. Schopenhauer) is fully sublated in Nietzsche; this is why Nietzsche is such an attractive and good thinker.
So what is sublated in transhumanism? Not pessimism, but I would say the opposite: it is pessimism that is precisely not sublated in transhumanism and can never be (my core argument here is that transhumanism is precisely the need to never sublate pessimism, which of course places it directly at odds with Nietzsche's own project), so instead in transhumanism some kind of weird hybrids of positivism and empirical-religious optimism are "affirmed".
