Questioning common assumptions about what constitutes human improvement, he asks whether the criteria proposed by its advocates are convincing. The book provides a rigorous approach to the topic which systematically and consistently explores assumptions about human enhancement and its effects. Drawing on current research and popular representations of human enhancement, from advertising to the internet, the book is written in non-technical, accessible language and is suitable for readers and students interested in the philosophy, ethics and politics of human enhancement.
