But not everyone has viewed the goal of humanism in such an optimistic way.

Human/Inhuman/Posthuman - Summer Schools in Europe

In Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Nietzsche gives us a portrait of the "last men," who may be viewed as the final outcome of rational progress and the fulfillment of the humanistic ideal: "the earth has become small, and on it hops the last man, who makes everything small.

His race is as ineradicable as the flea beetle; the last man lives longest. We have invented happiness, say the last men, and they blink. And so they blink.

But in spite of all their accomplishments, their power over nature, and their rational good sense, they seem to have lost any creative will to power. The last men have become small, Nietzsche comments. They are all the same-proper rational beings, who have purged themselves of all unreasonable passion and the desire to overcome themselves since they have already achieved the highest good.

Of course, it is a caricature, but even so, Nietzsche's discussion encapsulates a philosophical criticism of humanism-that humanism typically involves a fixed conception of human nature which ignores difference or even tries to correct it by upholding a standard paradigm of what it means to be a human being. Likewise, our rational nature is emphasized above all other aspects and this leads to a strong separation between humanity and nature itself.
