Denis R. Alexander on Healing, Enhancement and the Human Future

The latest Cambridge Paper from the Jubilee Centre is available online here (from where a pdf can be downloaded), this one by Denis R. Alexander:

Here is the summary:

‘This Paper reviews some recent examples of genetic engineering and brain science that make human technoscientific enhancement a pressing moral question. Healing and different types of enhancement are compared. Two rival world-views are considered, Transhumanism and Christianity – with contrasting visions of life after death – world-views which come to strikingly different conclusions concerning the path that leads to true human enhancement.’
