How to Build a Better Human: An Ethical Blueprint

Gregory E. Pence


Medicine has lately came across unbelievable instruments for human enhancement. but up to now, it has did not use them good, partially due to moral objections. in the meantime, covert makes an attempt flourish to augment with steroids, mind-enhancing medicinal drugs, and beauty surgery—all principally unstudied scientifically. The little good fortune to this point has been sporadic and financed privately. In How to construct a greater Human, fashionable bioethicist Gregory E. Pence argues that folks, if we're cautious and moral, can use genetics, biotechnology, and drugs to enhance ourselves, and that we should always publicly examine what individuals are doing covertly. Pence believes that we have to go beyond the 2 universal body tales of bioethics: bioconservative alarmism and uncritical enthusiasm, and that bioethics may still develop into a part of the solution—not the problem—in making higher humans.
