Forlagets beskrivelse af The Posthuman Condition

If biotechnology can be used to ´upgrade´ humans physically and mentally, should it be used at all? And, if so, to what extent? How will biotechnology affect societal cohesion? Can the development be controlled, or is this a Pandora's box that should remain closed?

These are but a few of the perplex questions facing scientists as a result of the increasing ability of technology to change biology and, in turn, profoundly change human living conditions. This development has created a new posthuman horizon that will influence contemporary life and politics in a
number of ways.

The Posthuman Condition addresses the challenges of:
Imagining a society where the properties of humans have shifted radically

Assessing the scope of deploying technologies that are already underway

Basing decisions on an ethical foundation that does not entail a concept of human nature

Ascertaining the types of political action that can and should be taken in the face of this situation

The anthology brings together researchers from a wide range of disciplines: biotechnology, medicine, ethics, politics, and aesthetics, and among contributors are Francis Fukuyama, Julian Savulescu, Maxwell Mehlman, John Harris and Chris Hables Gray.
