Abstract

This article contrasts two versions of posthumanism. In one, argued to be in continuity with humanism&apos;s own self-critical tradition, metaphysical questions, existential dilemmas, and issues of authentic human existence persist. In the other, dubbed "post-metaphysical," such questions are abandoned. The article uses a literary autobiography, Eva Hoffman&apos;s <i>Lost in Translation</i>, to demonstrate the importance of keeping posthumanism human.
