Enhancing the species: Genetic engineering technologies and human persistence
Many of the existing ethical analyses of genetic engineering technologies (GET) focus on how they can be used to enhance individuals-to improve individual well-being, health and cognition. There is a gap in the current literature about the specific ways enhancement technologies could be used to improve our populations and species, viewed as a whole.
