by Iain Brassington
Publisher: Bloomsbury Academic 2013
Number of pages: 240
Bioscience and the Good Life explores the complex relationship between modern biosciences and human flourishing. Here cognitive enhancement, longevity, and the spectacle of excellence in sports, are examined within the context of what constitutes a life well lived. Brassington advances an insightful and involved response to the existing debates between bioscientific optimists and pessimists, one which mediates their differences, and expands the traditional scope of their arguments.
