Beyond Human

Full Product Description

In ‘Beyond Human’, those who are interested, concerned or curious about the ethic implications of new scientific advances will find all the answers to their questions – and will probably discover some new ones in the process.

John Bryant, Professor of Biological Sciences and a leading voice in Bioethics, gives us unique insight into today’s scientific advances that are shaping our world as we speak. With a Christian perspective, John then considers these, showing how we are slowly taking control of nature and manipulating its unprecedented power without proper ethical reflection.

With clarity and startling wisdom, John will reveal exactly what the scientific world is currently doing, including:
•    The environment, poverty, and food modification
•    Genetics and eugenics
•    Modern medical technology
•    Transhumanism – ‘improving’ the species
•    The dehumanizing effects of technology

This fascinating book will make you marvel at God’s creation and human ingenuity, whilst help you build your own thoughts and opinions on whether what they are doing is morally, ethically and spiritually acceptable.

Publisher's Description

Recent scientific advances have made it possible to do the unthinkable - clone, design our own babies, 'genetically enhance' soldiers, and wipe out entire populations with a simple airborne chemical. Such technology means that 'nature' no longer follows an inevitable course, and that our decisions have unprecedented power.

This book introduces many of the most significant scientific advances of recent years including:
1) The environment, poverty, and food modification
2) Genetics and eugenics
3) Modern medical technology
4) Transhumanism - 'improving' the species
5) The dehumanizing effects of technology

'Beyond Human' asks us to stop and think about what all this means for us. New technology has developed so quickly that we haven't had time to consider all of its ethical implications. But not to do so is to risk our own humanity.
