These are questions that need to be answered now.

Robert Streiffer, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews Review from previous edition An excellent discussion by leading bioethicists of the issues raised by human enhancement. It would be excellent for use in classes devoted to spending at least a few weeks on enhancement, either at the upper-level undergraduate or graduate level.

Greg Bognar, Mind Human Enhancement gives a thorough and authoritative overview of the current state of this rapidly evolving field.
