In this revised edition of "Ethics, Reproduction and Genetic Control," leading scientists explore the nature and the goals of "test tube" reproduction and genetic engineering and their eugenic implications. This edition contains a new preface, and makes a significant contribution to the fields of applied philosophy and ethics. In contrast to the Warnock report, this extended commentary considers issues in the context of a social ethic rather than the individualist viewpoint.
The volume provides a forum for debate between science and society. The essays draw out the legal and ethical problems raised by new developments in genetic engineering. The ethical dilemmas are discussed not only from the perspective of secular moral philosophy but also from a theological point of view.
