The Posthuman Condition af Kasper Lippert-Rasmussen E-bog, PDF

The Posthuman Condition

- Ethics, Aesthetics and Politics of Biotechnological Challenges

af
(Udvid)

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 situationThe 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.
