human rights, international law, natural person, new technologies, moral attitude


Throughout history, man has been presented to us, on the one hand, as a barbarian, and on the other hand, a being endowed with reason, capable of carrying out actions for the benefit of his fellows etc. Man is the only moral being, the only rational being, therefore is often the subject of the most controversial situations that history could register over time. In this paper we will analyze the situation of the natural person in international law (Barbu, 2015a, 2015b), emphasizing a series of relevant aspects for contemporary times, aspects that, in the context of new human bioenhancement technologies, invite us to reflection, to critical thinking and establishing a moral/ethical/legal attitude.
