Mmhhh. It is undeniable that "posthumanists" in this context refers more to
post-humanism  than to posthuman-ism.

Yet some obvious convergences do exist, and should perhaps be explored much
more in depth than it is usually the case, especially amongst English-mother
tongue transhumanists who may be deterred to do so by the attitude of people
like Dale Carrico.

See, for instance:
- Viroid Life: Perspectives on Nietzsche and the Transhuman
Ansell Pearson
- Posthumanism (Readers in Cultural
Neil Badmington
- Pour en finir avec le nihilisme. Heidegger et la question de la
by Guillaume Faye
- Postmodern Fables<http://www.amazon.com/Postmodern-Fables-Jean-Francois-Lyotard/dp/0816625557/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1242854427&sr=8-9>
Jean-Francois Lyotard and Georges Van Den Abbeele
