Brave New World?: Theology, Ethics and the Human Genome

£7.99

Product description

One of the key issues facing us in the next millennium is the ability to manipulate the genetics of living organisms. The possibility of manipulating human genetics raises many theological, ethical land socio-political issues. These include specific decisions about whether the technology will be developed, how it will be applied and more general questions about the technical manipulation of "natural" processes.From a theological perspective the human genome project raises particular issues of social justice and medical ethics. The purpose of this book is to bring together the collective expertise of theologians, scientists and social scientists in order to provide a forum for critique and public debate focused on the human genome project.

Condition: Covers very corner bumped, shelfworn and scuffed; foreedge thumbed; one instance of pencil underlining but pages mostly clean and clear and binding tight.
