Keywords: Post-humanism | ethics | global society | catastrophes.

This article emerges out of the concern caused by certain concrete catastrophes that agitate our planet and by the opportunities that these catastrophes generate for the creation of new ethical links. Under the assumption that any ethic must conform to the social conditions in wich it appears, I will try to delimit the conditions under which these catastrophes emerge in our contemporary societies. Using the light provided by this study, I will assess the plausibility of some of the ethical-political proposals that have been advanced in our time (Hans Jonas, Ramón Ramos, Barbara Adam, Ulrich Beck). Finally, giving out suspicions about the weak... (Ver más) plausibility of these proposals, I shall attempt to establish a new basis for the creation of new solidarities with the help of the post-humanist perspective in the social sciences, as it has been put forward by John Law, Bruno Latour, and Donna Haraway, among others.
