Given the historical importance of utopian thought, this article discusses aspects of it in posthumanist technofuturism and the use of utopian and anti-utopian references in the ongoing debate on technological convergence.

Moreover, some possible consequences for the assessment of the ethical and societal implications of technological convergence are also addressed.
