Resumen

En 2004, a Neil Harbisson, que había nacido con discromatopsia, no se le permitió renovar su pasaporte británico; su foto fue rechazada. La Oficina de Pasaportes no permitía que Harbisson apareciera con un equipo electrónico en la cabeza. Harbisson alegó que su eyeborg (ojo electrónico) debía ser considerado parte de su cuerpo; él había devenido un cíborg. Cartas de respaldo de su médico, amigos y compañeros fueron enviadas a la Oficina de Pasaportes. Finalmente, se incluyó el dispositivo de Harbisson y se convirtió en el primer cíborg reconocido por un gobierno. Gracias a la tecnociencia, él pasó a ser un tipo diferente de ser poshumano: «Harbisson 2.0». Este trabajo evalúa los riesgos de nuestro futuro poshumano y plantea cinco principios de una biopolítica mínima.

Abstract

In 2004, Neil Harbisson, who was born with dyschromatopsia, was not allowed to renew his UK passport. His passport photo was rejected. The UK Passport Authority would not allow Harbisson to appear with electronic equipment on his head. Harbisson wrote back to them insisting that the ‘eyeborg’ (electronic eye) should be considered part of his body as he had become a cyborg. Letters from his doctor, friends and partners were sent to the Passport Office to give him support. Finally, Harbisson's device was included and he became the first cyborg recognised by a government. Thanks to the Technoscience, he is a different kind of post-human being: ‘Harbisson 2.0’. This paper evaluates the risks of our future post-human and raises five principles of minimal Biopolitics.
