Beyond Therapy: Biotechnology & the Pursuit of Happiness: A Report of the President’s Council on Bioethics
Leon R. Kass (ed) (pf). Biotechnology (BT) offers exciting & promising prospects for healing the sick & relieving the suffering. But because of their impressive powers to alter the workings of body & mind, the “dual uses” of the same technologies make them attractive also to people who are not sick but who would use them to look younger, perform better, feel happier, or become more “perfect.” These applications of BT present us with difficult challenges. This report considers such possible “beyond therapy” uses & explores both their scientific basis & the ethical & social issues they will raise. In enjoying the benefits of BT, we will need to hold fast to an account of the human being, seen not in material or mechanistic or med. terms, but in psychic & moral & spiritual ones.
