    Can Humans Dream of Electric Sheep? [REVIEW]Steven Umbrello - 2021 - Metascience 30 (2):1-3.
    As an idea, transhumanism has received increasing attention in recent years and across numerous domains. Despite presidential candidates such as Zoltan Istvan, who ran on an explicitly Transhumanist platform in 2016 but later dropped out to endorse Hillary Clinton, transhumanism has taken root more recently in the conspiratorial imaginations of the dark web.

    On French on Theories and Representation: Steven French: There Are No Such Things as Theories. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2020, 288 Pp, £55.00. [REVIEW]Sebastian Lutz - 2021 - Metascience 30 (1):9-15.
    In his refreshingly non-parochial book There Are No Such Things as Theories, Steven French develops an ontology and an account of representation for the Partial Structures View in the philosophy of science as a competitor to the logical empiricists’ Received View. I argue that formally and practically, the two views are on a par, and that French just needs to take a few more steps with his ontology and account of representation to arrive at the logical empiricists’ positions.
