Abstract English

The essay gives a detailed and selective overview over the discussion of transhumanism and posthumanism, taking account of the most influential authors’ impact on the movement. Their most important texts are bound to mark the scientific development of posthumanistic and transhumanistic concepts. Examples taken from literature, film and artistic performance show their impact in public, being both enriched by the scien-tific approach and guiding also the latter.
