Abstract

This essay wants to outline a general framework for the debate on post-human, that is on the ethical-anthropological reflection that questions the future of man in a context of a wider reflection on the relationship between the human person and the technique. This paper first uses the image of the archipelago and focuses on the various versions of the post-humanism argument. In this way, these variants are highlighted, showing in themselves some constants shared by different authors. At the end of this essay is offered a short review of the criticism towards the post-humanist philosophy, including the possibility to read it as an expression of a renewed Gnosticism.
