Biotechnologies and the human condition

Since ancient Greece the anthropological question has interested thinkers from a wide array of schools and traditions poets, theologians, philosophers, and scientists who have explored the most varied aspects of the human condition and placed moral, social, and political issues at the center of attention, beyond the limits, laws, and acts that connect the human being to the natural order of things and to the deities. In this book, the reader will be confronted with a new kind of thinking. This is a book about bioengineering, but envisaged through the perspective of the humanities. The focus is on the great impact that the new biotechnologies have on the human condition, leading to the revolutionizing of human abilities and the demand for reconsidering the anthropological question and its moral, juridical, and other implications associated with it.
