The moral debate surrounding the realm of bioethics pits the goods we seek – the healing of diseases and relief of suffering, against the potential evil of a possible post-human future. In Brave New Biology: The Challenge to Human Dignity Leon Kass looks to what extent we can curtail the progress of biomedical technology in a democracy and the danger we face in forgetting the meaning of humanity in a scientific-technologically advanced world.
