Life, Liberty, and the Defense of Dignity
The Challenge for BioethicseBook - 2002
In "Life, Liberty and the Defense of Dignity," Dr. Kass has written a book that grapples with the moral meaning of the biomedical technologies now threatening to take us back to the future envisioned by Aldous Huxley in Brave New World. In a series of meditations on cloning, embryo research, organ sale and the assault on mortality, Kass questions the wisdom of trying to break down our natural limits and remake the human body into an instrument of our will. He charts a course for avoiding the dehumanization of biotechnical "re-creationism" without rejecting modern science and its contributions to human welfare.
