Progress in genetic editing; neuroscientific neural mapping and functioning; device implants; pharmacology; and regenerative medicine – just to remind several among the most relevant fields – are deeply changing our understanding of human nature, nourishing new expectations and transforming social visions about ideal futures and the meaning of human life.The aim of this panel is to give some keys – from philosophy and theology – in order to respond the new challenges and opportunities emerging from such advances.
