The Case for Perfection

Johann Roduit has published a new book: The Case for Perfection: Ethics in the Age of Human Enhancement (Frankfurt: Peter Lang, 2016)

Synopsis 

The author critically examines what role the notion of perfection should play in the debate regarding the ethics of human enhancement. He argues that the concept of «human perfection» needs to be central when morally assessing human enhancements. This anthropological ideal provides an additional norm to evaluate enhancing interventions, extending the well-established bioethical principles of autonomy, justice, and safety.
