Abstract: This essay retraces the implications tied to the question of life in a ‘disenchanted’ world by analysing some features of the bioethical and philosophical-political debate. The author discusses the dicothomy between sanctity-of-life and quality-of-life doctrines, in order to show that the opposition between the two perspectives is not altogether convincing. Seen in the light of the metamorphosis of the notion of life ( reconstructed here following Arendt’s analysis of the Modern Age), this opposition proves to be the superficial manifestation of a deeper issue, which amounts to social reproduction’s imperatives.
