Summary/Abstract: The article is an attempt to return at the human being “after the cyborg”, originating in the need to overcome the posthumanist impasse of some of the trends of contemporary cultural theory. The author is not trying to fix the identity of human/non-human animal in all of its bio-digital configurations, but rather discuss to what extent the transformed understanding of human being can not only help us think better about ourselves and other who can but do not have to be like us, as well as live better with others: machines, people, non-human animals. This research is equally interested in the pragmatics of “how,” and in the character of the “we.”
