A transhumanist* ideal, the augmented man is an individual who has been subjected to modifications aimed at enhancing his performance, thanks to interventions on the body based on scientific or technological principles. Part-man, part-machine, the individual would be able to run faster, see well in the dark, withstand pain, possess enhanced intellectual abilities, resist illness or death, etc. The “repaired man” already exists and “connected” prostheses are getting better every day. The augmented man is gradually becoming a reality, with the development of artificial external skeletons used for military purposes.
