Good question.  Damien, you know about the Transhumanist Reader (or
Transhumanism Reader), right?  

But, your question causes me to wonder what is a major text?  How long does
a body of writing have to be to be considered significant? How many pages is
a book? What about a manifesto?  Would a manifesto be considered a worthy
text on transhumanism? What about publishing? Should a text be published to
be considered a "major text"?  Probably.

The "Transhumanist Statement" and the "Extropic Art Manifesto" were
published in 1997 by NASA/ESA.
