Each novel development in biomedical technology seems to spark rancorous disputes. Those averse to new technologies often express the concern that the new technology is “unnatural” or requires society to “play God.” The book entitled Future Bioethics is an ambitious piece of work that seeks to reframe the debates surrounding current controversies in bioethics. Carefully examining and dissecting claims made by many policy makers and ethicists on topics such as assistance in dying, genetic engineering, and embryonic stem cell research, bioethicist Ronald A. Lindsay discusses each issue in turn. After suggesting a detailed way to approach and resolve a dispute in bioethics, Lindsay proceeds to analyse several different cutting-edge issues. Through his analysis, he also indicates how to achieve pragmatic, progressive solutions to these controversies. It is thus suggested that, Future Bioethics may help to illuminate the way forward to bioethical policies appropriate for the 21st century. Enhancing Evolution John Harris P R I N C E T O N U N
