The human being is an extraordinary torsion, essentially unique and singular. We might find there something of its particular value. The development of assisted reproductive technologies has changed the world as we knew it. Following Thomas Kuhn ideas, can we argue that we are under a "paradigm shift" in terms of this revolution? We´ll see… For instance we will present some specific scenarios in which the scientific breakthrough, the regulatory and legislative field, and the subjective dimension are interconnected. In-between chance and necessity, the concerns of reprogenetics faced us with huge question which cross the evolution of human condition, erode the foundations and crush into the traditional model of the “contemporary” family leading to a wide range of new family conformation. Following some ideas of Michel Foucault proposed in The History of Sexuality I, The Will to Knowledge we will analyze how power affects daily practices. To put the desire into discourse suppose to analyze which are the mechanism of power in which the discourse on sex has become essential. “Sexuality” and “Family” will be our triggers to reflect on the impact of biopolitics in the narrative discourse over the body. Finally we have chosen a film to explore the dark and controversial aspects of the eugenics strategy opposed to reprogenetics approach.
