VILLARROEL, Raúl. Bioethical and biopolitical remarks on Transhumanism: Arguing about the posthuman condition. Rev. filos. [online]. 2015, vol.71, pp.177-190. ISSN 0718-4360.

Understanding Transhumanism as a particular turn of contemporary reflection that maintains the current state of humanity is not the final but just a transitional one, which can and should be scientific and technologically enhanced, the bioethical and biopolitical implications of such situation will be examined in this paper. Here it will be explored the transhumanist ideas related to the indissoluble link that in modern times have been established between the development of technologies and politics and strategies of neoliberal governmentality. This is expected to pose a set of questions about the risks associated to the unsuspected modes of production, management and biopolitical control of subjectivity that may be allegedly linked to the transhumanist idea.

Keywords : transhumanism; bioconservationism; posthumanism; biopolitics; bioethics.
