Le transhumanisme face au droit et à l’éthique de Jean Carbonnier

Abstract : In one of his books Jean Carbonnier wrote: « mortal condition is based on a public order argument (la condition de mortel est d’ordre public) ». This sentence could mean that no one should research immortality, and, in that way, it can echoes to recent transhumanism wishes. Men could afford their desires thanks to recent progress in biotechnologies. It can also refer to the recent debates over organ transplant. An analysis of this curious assertion and its possible meanings may light human corps legal framework and bioethics.
