Posthuman and Transhuman: The anthropology of the future?
Technological and pharmaceutical discoveries and research continue to stimulate philosophical reflection, outlining new scenarios. One of these is the so-called “transhuman and posthuman movement.” It has long been the focus of media attention.

Various understandings of the two terms and what differentiates them pose some difficulties. Depending on the authors and their fields of expertise, the perspectives presented vary considerably, a sign of the fluidity that increasingly characterizes today’s cultural landscape.

Here, having to choose, we first of all distinguish between the practical-applicative sphere and the theory underlying it. In other words, the possible applications of the new findings are not the exclusive property of these trains of thought, although they can certainly become a channel for a new anthropological vision.
