Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The bioethical debates about the project of eliminating the "chance of origin", through genetic technology, have put the question of space to be left to the autonomy of man in the age of technoscience. In these philosophical philosophical discussions, often only "fantacientific", however, one fact stands out: a part of how much, in the field of human reproduction, first could not be the object of decision; today through technology I could to a certain extent be. We are facing, thus, an extension of the space of what can be decided. But to what extent is the responsibility-knowledge-decision nexus possible when talking about reproduction? The radical novelty of all generated, while affirming the falsity of any exhaustive claim of the child's programming, at the same time illuminates something fundamental of human action. At the edge of the bioethic analysis, this essay concentrates, thus, on the relationship between knowledge and decision to see, not only to what extent our decisions can be based on adequate knowledge, but whether the reconstruction, promoted by Derrida, is true. which is decided in its own sense only when it is not known in advance what should, or is convenient, be done. Does knowledge really cancel the decision as such? What does the very unpredictable nature of every child teach us about our decisions? These are some of the questions to which the essay seeks to answer.
