Format: Hardcover
With all the talk about human enhancements, cloning, and gene alterations, are we heading for a Brave New World of horror? Plenty of science fiction stories would have you think so - but not political philosophy scholar Peter Lawler in STUCK WITH VIRTUE: THE AMERICAN INDIVIDUAL AND OUR BIOTECHNOLOGY FUTURE. His contention is that, quite the opposite, mankind's own libertarian principles will lend to tyranny, not biological experimentation - and he maintains that the human ability to different between feeling good and being good will remain as a stop gate to biotechnology's fast pace. An intriguing discussion.

We read this in an honors Political Science class on Darwinism in politics.

It was pretty universal that the entire premise of his argument was pure bologna. No one in the class, including the professor, thought his argument held any weight. It was a boring read and hard to get through once you realized Lawler was just blowing steam, which was pretty quickly.

Larry Arnhart, who holds the opposite viewpoint, gave a much more convincing argument on the subject. The class much preferred his book over Lawler's. I would recommend his book over Lawler's any day, but if you want to compare the two, then go ahead and purchase this book. It'll just serve to reinforce Arnhart's statements.
