About this book


In Human Cloning a panel of distinguished philosophers, medical ethicists, religious thinkers, and social critics tackle the thorny problems raised by the now real possibility of human cloning. In their wide ranging reviews, the distinguished contributors critically examine the major arguments for and against human cloning, probe the implications of such a procedure for society, and critically evaluate the "Report and Recommendations of the National Bioethics Advisory Commission." The debate includes both religious and secular arguments, as well as an outline of the history of the cloning debate and a discussion of human cloning's impact on our sense of self and our beliefs about the meaning of life.

Human Cloning offers a timely and concise one volume survey of all the major arguments for and against human cloning. It will well serve medical ethicists, social and cultural critics, public policy specialists, and the educated layperson who wants to better understand this issue and its implications for our society, culture, and civilization.
