This book provides a refreshing contribution to the debates about enhancement and offers a much-needed analysis of the relationship between emerging technologies and liberal tolerance―or the lack of it―in some well-rehearsed arguments. This is essential reading for anyone interested in not only enhancement but also emerging technologies in general.(Ruth Chadwick, Distinguished Research Professor, Cardiff University)
Blackford brilliantly demolishes the philosophical and ethical confusions of fearful opponents of emerging reproductive and genetic technologies and succinctly explains why it is moral for people to radically increase their healthy lifespans and to enhance their physical, emotional, and intellectual capacities.(Ronald Bailey, author of Liberation Biology: The Scientific and Moral Case of the Biotech Revolution)
