Abstract

The contribution reflects on the crucial role that the body assumes in the context of the posthuman need/process of integral redefinition of the notion of the human. And, dialoguing, so to speak, even with positions from contemporary philosophical thought, such as those of Michel Serres, it specifically comes to highlight body characteristics of excess, unavoidability, reverberation. So: excess, in the sense that the body intentionally comes out of itself, hybridizing with the world and thus becoming a dimension of ontological, ethical, and cognitive construction of the human. Unavoidability, in the sense of the substantial irreproducibility—even in the context of technological hybridization—of the body, precisely by virtue of its anthropological dimensionality. Reverberation, in the sense that the body, as a dimensional space of redefinition/reconstruction of the human within the relationality with alterities, emerges as a reverberating mirror and catalyst of the posthumanist work of building a hybrid thought of (human) hybridization.
