Liberal Eugenics

In this provocative book, philosopher Nicholas Agar defends the idea that parents should be allowed to enhance their children's characteristics.

Gets away from fears of a Huxleyan 'Brave New World' or a return to the fascist eugenics of the past
Written from a philosophically and scientifically informed point of view
Considers real contemporary cases of parents choosing what kind of child to have
Uses 'moral images' as a way to get readers with no background in philosophy to think about moral dilemmas
Provides an authoritative account of the science involved, making the book suitable for readers with no knowledge of genetics
Creates a moral framework for assessing all new technologies

Nicholas Agar is Senior Lecturer at Victoria University of Wellington. His previous books include Life's Intrinsic Value (2001) and Perfect Copy (2002).
