In this provocative book, philosopher Nicholas Agar defends the idea that parents should be allowed to enhance their children’s characteristics.
  • Gets away from fears of a Huxleyan ‘Brave New World’ or a return to the fascist eugenics of the past
  • Written from a philosophically and scientifically informed point of view
  • Considers real contemporary cases of parents choosing what kind of child to have
  • Uses ‘moral images’ as a way to get readers with no background in philosophy to think about moral dilemmas
  • Provides an authoritative account of the science involved, making the book suitable for readers with no knowledge of genetics
  • Creates a moral framework for assessing all new technologies
