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?

In this sense, the traditional tools of human-ism 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 epistemo-logical revolution of the categories that humanism uses to conceptualize the journey that divides the Homo sa-piens from the man. Prior to a new image of man, however, the post-humanism requires a new formulation of the theory of evolution. In fact, as we will see, the novelty of its approach is to "correct" Darwinian evolution with the introduction of the role of alterity in the course of or
