Summary/Abstract: In this article I present the general assumptions of the transhumanist philosophy, which was founded in the late twentieth century by Max More. This trend is only slightly known in Poland. It postulates the use of advanced biotechnology in the further evolution of the human species. The result of this process will be the appearance of the posthuman and a new posthuman world. In this article I present who – according to transhumanists – the posthuman will be, and what changes must occur for the posthuman to appear. I also sketch the utopian character of this concept.
