The aim of this work is to highlight the problems that human empowerment poses in the sports field. The phenomenon of sport doping is precisely analyzed as an expression of enhancement in the light of a biogiuridic and bioethical reflection. The question that animates all the digression essentially concerns the definition of doping and therefore whether the same depends on purely legal qualifications and classifications or whether it is a social and cultural phenomenon and therefore whether it is the cultural context of reference to define a given phenomenon, substance or practice as a dopant. To pursue this objective, it was decided to provide a first definition of human empowerment in order to delimit the field of investigation and then analyze only one of the different expressions of this phenomenon, doping precisely. Consequently, it was decided to provide a study of the doping phenomenon both from a legal and ethical point of view within the macro-context doping in sport.
