THE PHILOSOPHY SALON: THE ETHICS OF ENHANCEMENT

This event has passed!

What are the ethical implications of using biotechnology to control the physical and mental traits our children develop?

With continuing advances in biotechnology, it will soon be possible to exert greater control over the physical and mental traits our children develop. What are the ethical implications that arise with the use of this technology?

Is there reason to refrain from utilizing this technology to produce children who are smarter or stronger than they may otherwise have been? What sort of restrictions, if any, are called for with respect to human enhancement?
