    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Advances in biotechnology have enabled interventions in the human organism (genetic, psychopharmological, and technical) that promise to increase physical and intellectual performance over the 'normal' or 'natural' boundary, as well as to make possible targeted changes in human experience. The author investigates ethical debates surrounding these issues with a particular focus on arguments that employ a normative concept of a person that allows or disallows for these particular interventions.

    Reviews

    "Das Verhältnis von Anthropologie zu Ethik, von (mutmaßlich) normativem Status des Menschen zu den Normen, die menschliche Handlungen anleiten, ist weiterhin unklar. Der geneigte Leser wird in Heilingers Untersuchung aber viele gute und die weitere philosophische Diskussion anregende Gründe finden, sich dieses Verhältnisses gründlich anzunehmen."
    Elif Özmen in: Archiv für Rechts- und Sozialphilosophie 2/2012
