Abstract

Transhumanism is a movement that has become increasing visible. Whether in the media, through conferences (specialized or informative), articles or interviews, its proposals about human improvement through technological advances, as well as its reliance on science, are attractive promises of happiness to be found in the improvement of our condition and the overcoming of our deficiencies. Morphological freedom is a fundamental concept in Transhumanism, and this article presents a critical approach to two predominant interpretations of this concept that appear in the transhumanist literature.
