Connected by some thinkers to the humanist enthusiasm for techno-trans­humanism, we could ask why Nietz­sche asks us to revalue values — after all, aren’t we already doing that? Didn’t the free thinkers of Nietz­sche’s day do that? Weren’t they enlightened enough? Did they not in fact already go beyond what had been regarded as good and beyond what had been regarded as evil? Why, using the mouthpiece of his Thus Spoke Zarathustra, does Nietz­sche urge us to “overcome” humanity unless to remind us to get over ourselves and our petty wanting, our longing, for immortality?

This interpretation of living bodies has led to a valorization of supposedly immortal souls and contempt for mortal bodies. The adoption of a proper mix between these two attitudes would then lead to a corresponding mix of punishment and rewards in and for eternal life.
