GUIMARAES, Maria Rita de Oliveira. The body as container of science. Psicol. rev. (Belo Horizonte) [online]. 2006, vol.12, n.20, pp. 131-139. ISSN 1677-1168.

The statute of the modern human body shows it as a dismembered entity, fragmented into spare organs available for replacement, according to the requirements of the technical world. Mankind’s humus does not necessarily follow the father’s word, but the scientist’s. The body must function as it must, that is, program itself for fecundation, while the duty to be a mother is guaranteed. by universal rights, acquired by each woman since her condition as a citizen in modern times. According to Heidegger, the issue of de-humanization of the world does not concern exactly technical devices (a technique, for example, the freezing of ovules), or any given enterprise (for example, biologism), but ‘a deeper historical disposition that overcomes nature’s limits and changes men into utensils’.
