This seminal and controversial essay, the Italian original of which appeared in print in 2003, contains a coherent and passionate pro-tech discussion of most issues relevant to biopolitics and “wet” transhumanism, in the light of continental philosophies of Becoming — namely those of Nietzschean, Futurist and posthumanist descent, as the crucial questions of our age and collective destinies.

As such, it offers a transhumanist and Promethean perspective on what we should think and make of GMOs, environmental policies, eugenics, cyborgisation, demography, biodiversity, reproduction technologies, genetic engineering, medical research, cloning, national health programs, life-extensionism and self-directed evolution.
