Humanbiotechnology as Social Challenge : An Interdisciplinary Introduction to Bioethics Hardback

Edited by Dagmar Schipanski, Nikolaus Knoepffler, Stefan Lorenz Sorgner

Part of the Ashgate Studies in Applied Ethics series

Description

Humanbiotechnology has progressed immensely, and humanbiotechnological research has entered a crucial stage.

This collection of essays is a significant and original contribution to the public debate on humanbiotechnology and its ethical and social ramifications. Interdisciplinary in composition this volume brings together leading academics in the fields of biology, law, theology, ethics and sociology to share their viewpoints and insights and to promote exchange between disciplines and convey facts and opinions to the wider public on this increasingly important area of technological development and ethical interest. Eschewing analysis on pragmatic or utilitarian grounds the essays in this collection are informed by the key ethical concept of 'human dignity' which has been central to the continental debate on human bioethics and is gaining in importance for the debate in the anglophone world.
