Abstract: If we look deep down in human history, we will find the fact that man has always aimed to become something more than it was, trying to overcome its biological limitations and to become Homo superior. To do so, the human enhance its intellectual capacities through education, discipline and meditation, and its body through physical exercises and diets. But, does human enhancement through out exploitation of new unnatural technologies which goes to raising of human capabilities above statistic normal level for functioning of one individual, is ethically controversial? It is so because the enormous development of science and technology enables human challenges for self-improvement to stand on the very verge of realization, and therefore, on the verge of the human enhancement’s revolution in face of the transhumanitarian ideology. In this sense, the author examines the reality and feasibility of such possibilities, and confronts them against the very known arguments of the bio-conservatives.
