ABSTRACT:
The GRIN technologies (-geno, -robo, -info, -nano) promise to change the inner constitution of human
body and its own existence. This transformation involves the structure of our lives and represent a –brave?
new world that we have to explore and to manage. In this sense, the traditional tools of humanism
seems very inadequate to think the biotech century and there is a strong demand of a new thought for
the evolution and the concrete history of life. The posthuman philosophy tries to take this new path
of human existence in all of its novelty since GRIN technologies seem to promise new and unexpected
paths of evolution to living beings and, above all, man. For this, the post-human thought, as we see, is a
new anthropological overview on the concrete evolution of human being, an overview that involves an
epistemological revolution of the categories that humanism uses to conceptualize the journey that divides
the Homo sapiens from the man. But, is this right?
RESUMEN:
Las tecnologías GRIN (-geno, -robo, -info, nano) prometen cambiar la constitución interna del cuerpo
humano y su propia existencia. Esta transformación consiste en la estructura de nuestras vidas y representan
un –¿valiente?– nuevo mundo que tenemos que explorar y administrar. En este sentido, lo instrumentos
tradicionales del humanismo parecen bastante insuficientes para pensar el siglo de la biotecnología y
existe una fuerte demanda de un nuevo pensamiento para la evolución y la historia concreta de la vida.
La filosofía posthumana intenta tomar este nuevo camino de la existencia humana en toda su novedad
ya que las tecnologías GRIN parecen prometer caminos nuevos y inesperados de la evolución de los seres
vivos y, sobre todo, humanos. Por esto, el pensamiento post-humano, como vemos, es una nueva visión
antropológica sobre la evolución concreta del ser humano, una visión general que implica una revolución
epistemológica de las categorías que el humanismo utiliza para conceptualizar el viaje que divide a los
Homo sapiens del hombre. ¿Pero, serà correcto?

As we see, the rhythm and power of technological
change seems to modify not only the existence but also
the evolution of the human life. The GRIN technologies

transformation involves the structure of our lives and rep-
