The aim of this dissertation is to determine the most powerful factors of the body discourse conducted in contemporary philosophy, science and fine arts, which influence human thoughts about his status in present world and future existing. The huge amount of examples that could serve as illustrations to support the thesis that embodiment is a powerful tool that can have impact on human preservation as a species, had to be reduced and only the subjective selection is discussed. Especially the issues concerning the progress in science and technology leading to the creation of “new human” are emphasized. The corporeal practices are widely taken in modern medicine not only to support life, but also to prevent from diseases and repair diseased bodies and those practices reflect in philosophical thoughts and arts.
