This reflection article is framed within the humanism, bioethics and education relationship in the context of cyber culture. In this digital world, humanism and technology, science and humanism, are found again, and now subject and human nature are located in the center of the debate. From the questioning of the nature and status of humanism, the goal of this paper is aimed at elucidating about subjectivities in the technological era from the question about the kind of emerging social subject in the digital age with its technological mediations. Both, education and bioethics, are confronted with the challenge of setting humanism, its nature and identity, in expressions like cyborg, post organic man, numerical man, symbiotic man, cyberanthropos. Education and bioethics converge on the subject and its reconfiguration in the digital agora traces challenges and opens horizons in purpose training and care of human beings.
