The paper examines the relationship between the philosophy of F. Nietzsche and transhumanist philosophy. Transhumanism is the branch of thought arguing in favour of human transformation (post-human). Thus, it might seem, that it is derived from the classical idea of the transformation of the man, its goal being a superman (der √úbermensch) found in Nietzschean philosophy. However, transhumanism points to five problems in Nietzsche's project. It rejects Nietzschean anti scientific, anti progressive, anti moral and anti social ideas as well as his destructive way of creating the superman. The paper argues that the four objections presented by transhumanists against Nietzsche are ill-founded, while the last one is valid.
