Abstract

The phenomenon of gestational surrogacy “embodies” the complexity of late-modern society (Beck U.). The extraordinary enlargement of the technical universe challenges the relationship between human beings and nature, raising brand new issues, not only in this field. “Cosmic tasks” (Jonas H.), previously concerning the divine sphere, today can be the result of human choices. At stake, there seems to be the future of humanity. Showing the social and the imagery implications of this enlargement is the goal of this paper.
