Abstract: To Function or to Be? Questions and Observations on Enhancement.

Long-standing and recurring, the theme of technological enhancement – for several years now – has
polarized the attention of bioethicists and bio-jurists, divided between techno-enthusiastic and
techno-phobic. Today, however, also in light of the new scenarios disclosed by the so-called
converging technologies, it is more than ever necessary to promote a moderate position, benevolent
towards the advantages disclosed by the advance of progress, but equally attentive to the defense of
the human dimension.
