Keeping Helmuth Plessner’s philosophical anthropology in the background, the paper analyses in a post-humanist perspective the formation of the self and personal identity, taking also into account the risk relating to the conservation of the living species that will come after the widespread hybridization between machines and human beings. The interventions on the body could be eventually limited by the necessity to preserve some fundamental characteristics of the human shape, to avert the risk that new-born children lack the conditions for the fixing of the consciousness of their own selves. With reference to all of this, the paper urges on a restructuring of the imaginary used by the thought on the post-human condition to find its categories and its main developments.
