Abstract In this paper technology is shown through human enhancement and more specifically through a successful total artificial heart transplant that is analysed from a philosophical point of view with the aim of finding out if the perception of being human is changing. The main aspects analysed are if humans are becoming cyborgs, the fear of losing ourselves as human beings and losing our identity. However the concept of having a total artificial heart transplant is tied to processes of if it is right or wrong and how the change in the persona in the sense of self is challenged. The outcome has been shown to be far more complex based on the personal persuasion of oneself.
