The study formulates and develops the thesis of mankind transiting from the humanistic period of implementing pedagogical utopia, of shaping and perfecting the spirit, into the post-humanistic periods of implementing merely the eugenic utopia: of technological automatic support to the biologically and culturally inherited species accomplishments of human body and spirit, achieved, so far, by means of humanistic education. The author continues by implying that this transition into the human implementation of a new utopia takes place without any decision-making and reflection, and only in relation to the emergence of tele-technology and biotechnology, imposing the automation of the functioning of these or other aspects of the spirituality and corporality of man by tearing apart his psychosomatic /species and personal/ unity. When assuming that technological audiovisual media globally implement tele-technology, the study claims them to be pioneer in the process of transitioning from one utopia into another. In his reasoning the author refers to the achievements of contemporary philosophy (Heidegger, Slöterdijk, Klossowski, Deleuze, Baudrillard, Stiegler, Dufour).
