Abstract

With vast new scientific and technological powers, we face unprecedented choices for which traditional ethics provide little direct guidance. What role can the religious community play in addressing the ethical and theological issues that even science now acknowledges as urgent? Chapman's work forges a method for integrating ethical reasoning with scientific data, focusing on four issues -- cloning, genetic engineering, patenting of life, and environmental alteration. For each, she reviews the work of religious thinkers, assesses the roles of the religious community, considers relevant confessional differences, determines how traditional theological and ethical concepts can be clarified, reformulated, and "operationalized" to meet the questions, and finally she formulates helpful methodological options. She calls for a scientifically informed religious ethics built dialogically from concepts in both science and theology.

Zijn worsteling met deze twee leidt tot een aantal onvergetelijke situaties waarin lijden, lachen, denken en de Dood om elkaar heen wervelen in een unieke danse macabre.

Abstract

In clear terms, John Avise reviews discoveries in molecular biology, evolutionary genetics, and human genetic engineering, and discusses the relevance of these findings to issues of concern traditionally reserved for mythology, theology and religious faith. The text explains how the "genetic gods" figure in our development - not just our metabolism and physiology, but even our emotional disposition, personality, ethical leanings and even religiosity. Yet genes are physical rather than metaphysical entities. Having arisen via an amoral evolutionary process - natural selection - genes have no consciousness, no sentient code of conduct, no reflective concern about the consequences of their actions. It is Avise's contention that late-1990s genetic knowledge can inform attempts to answer typically religious questions - about origins, fate and meaning.

Abstract

In February 1997 Ian Wilmut, a Scottish biologist, announced that he had successfully cloned a sheep, Dolly, from the cells of a Finn Dorset ewe that had been dead for six years. The news that mammalian cloning from adult tissue was possible set off an excited debate among scientists, politicians, ethicists, and the general public about the event's implications and prospects for the cloning of a human being. This book surveys the debate, and for the first time presents Ian Wilmut's own thoughts on the possibility of human cloning. The Human Cloning Debate is edited and introduced by Dr. Glenn McGee of the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Bioethics. In addition to contributions by Wilmut and McGee, there is an authoritative, accessible explanation of the science of cloning by Potter Wickware, editor at the pre-eminent science journal Nature. Other chapters explore cloning's philosophical implications, argue for or against the technology, and present various religious and political perspectives on cloning. The book concludes with a short story by Richard Kadrey that explores creatively how cloning is likely to affect families and human relationships in the (possibly not-too-distant) future. The Human Cloning Debate is a definitive treatment of one of the most intriguing and controversial issues at the close of the millennium. It presents for the first time in print the reflections of the scientist, Ian Wilmut, who brought the subject to the fore. It is essential for readers interested in issues of public policy, in recent developments in biotechnology, and in the intersection of science and philosophy.
