Smart Techonologies, Fundamental Rights and Posthumanism


  • Diego Echen University of Rosario


This paper tries to highlight the challenges facing humanity and, in particular, the Law, in the face of the vertiginous and revolutionary advances experienced in the world in the field of intelligent technologies, proposing the universal application of some legal principles that we believe should unavoidable and transversally act as fundamental pillars from which the pertinent normative regulation is founded.

Likewise, certain questions are also raised about the impact that the phenomenon called posthumanism or transhumanism could have on the fundamental rights of the person and that in our opinion impose the need to set clear legal limits to scientific and technological innovations, avoiding reification of the human body, limits that, as we will see, in no case can dispense with the principle of human dignity.
