Biotechnology, human nature, and Christian ethics
CUP, 2018, xix + 215 pp., hbk
McKenny’s volume arises from the task of Christian ethics to evaluate and respond to an increasing range of new possibilities emerging out of technological progress. The central question he addresses in this context is whether there is a normative human nature which can inform ethical responses to such changes. It is not a question of technology simply enhancing human characteristics but of changing the characteristics themselves.
