The article presents author’s own interpretation of human being as a boundary between modern and future science and education. Traditional science and education were created and used by humanity to explore and conquer the nature, without transforming the human nature itself. The science of the future will be based on the transformation of man, improvement of his corporeality, on the destruction of the boundaries of human as naturally prescribed. The situation of the present should be viewed not only as a consequence of previous historical development, but also as a state that is formed from the future. The conclusion is substantiated that man’s comprehension of himself creates the necessary frontier between the science of the present and of the future. In social and humanitarian knowledge and the educational system, there is no reflection on the essence of man and the consequences of his transformation by means of genetic technologies, NBIC-convergence, transplantology. The author considers the prospects of science to be associated with the humanitarian and philosophical reflection on the processes of human transformation.
