Humankind of today face various trans-boundary phenomena due to the development of scientific technology such as the extension of the human body and mentality, the destabilizing of the concept of time and space due to digital networking, and the emergence of a subject without a body, etc. Such cultural phenomena which put into question the traditional concept of the ‘human’ require a new frame of understanding which goes beyond modern humanism. This book has been planned in answer to these demands with part 1 introducing the theoretical background which has developed post-humanism discussions and investigates the difference and relationship between humanism, post-humanism, and trans-humanism. Part 2 discusses the various ethical and moral, philosophical problems related to the development of the human being. Part 3 looks at types of human being different from present images of human, that is, the aspects of post-human representations such as the cloning ,android, cyborg, and alien, etc. in popular culture and discusses the public’s understanding of the naturalness, otherness, class, utopia and dystopia implied in them.

[Trans-Humanities Series]

"Trans-Humanities" is the study of the relationship between human beings in trans-cultural phenomena whose cultural boundaries are drastically broken up and reshaped in a rapidly changing society. It aims at self-examining making a boundary which causes confrontation between different studies, and further, developing a research model playing a role of bridge between academic study and daily life.

To accomplish this purpose, "Trans-Humanities" has strengthened the relationship with other studies not only in humanities but also those in social science, art and natural science. Plus, it has expanded the scope of existing research in humanities to overall culture and studied about various points of trans-boundaries, listening voices of the marginal and minority group. "Trans-Humanities" is developing a model for anthropology in the future, which is able to adapt to a swiftly changing media atmosphere and seek a harmony between human and technology, and it has put much efforts to connect academic study to daily life, reinforcing the practical aspects of humanistic knowledge and seeking a more public-friendly atmosphere.

"Trans-Humanities Academic Book Series" is designed by Ewha Institute for the Humanities to reflect research results by EIH Trans-Humanities Research Team, and after the issues of glocality, gender and multimedia, this series is made to intensify the research for trans-humanities by the themes of "cultural exchange and hybridity," "post-humanism and human" and "trans-boundary imagination and reconstruction of humanistic knowledge." The EIH expects "Trans-Humanities Academic Book Series" to propose a new direction for humanities and lead a creative and future-oriented humanities.
