Resumen

VILACA, Murilo Mariano. Melhoramentos humanos, no plural: pela qualificação de um importante debate filosófico. Kriterion [online]. 2014, vol.55, n.129, pp.331-347. ISSN 0100-512X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0100-512X2014000100018.

In this paper, I discuss the idea of human enhancement (HE). My goal is to refute three frustrating trends in the HE criticism, namely the ideas that: (1) human nature will become artificial, suggesting that we will be facing something new and uniquely dangerous, and that it is still possible to preserve a radical separation between nature and technique; (2) it is possible to address and criticize HE from a semantic uniqueness, which is directly related to the previous item; and (3) there is an univocity among the HE's defenders on how individuals should handle the available bio-techno-scientific tools made available, namely, as a naive and uncritical obligation to become enhanced.

Palabras clave : Human enhancement; bio-techno-science; pluralism of views; normativity.
