Product Description

Review

"Indeed, the book itself is a cognitive enhancer par excellence and is sure to raise the level of debate on the use of enhancements and their potential risks and benefits for individuals and society itself."  ( Neuroethics , 14 December 2011) "This volume is appropriate for all who wish to reflect seriously on the prospects for enhancing human capacities. References in the articles range widely over the literature in bioscience and philosophy. Comprehensive index included. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower–level undergraduates and above; general readers." (Choice, 1 November 2011)

Review

"This is clearly the most comprehensive and best collection on human enhancement. It provides needed clarification of both the relevant science and the ethical and policy issues––an indispensable contribution to the debates." — Dan W. Brock , PhD, Frances Glessner Lee Professor of Medical Ethics, Department of Global Health and Social Medicine, Harvard Medical School

Excellent anthology 22 Jun 2012
By Anomaly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
It is rare to find an anthology in bioethics with such a range of high-quality articles, many of them previously unpublished. Standout essays include Powell and Buchanan's "Breaking Evolution's Chains" and Temkin's "Is Living Longer Living Better?" Highly recommended for scholars working in the area, bioethics teachers looking for material for their classes, and biologists interested in the moral implications of biomedical enhancement.
