This paper discuss the human and social consequences of the technological development in the field of genetics. Leading biotechnologists argue that we are entering a world in which the human nature will be changed and cast in new design. The vision of a post-human society is growing. But what does it mean? By changing our genes, we are changing our human and social future. This paper take the temperature on how the human and societies will look like when the post-human biotechnology is implemented on a broad scale.
