The two-chapter units address specific questions, juxtaposing the scientific "facts" (in the initial chapter) with the ethical questions (in the second chapter). While the ...show more science has been simplified and explained at the level of an introductory biology course, it successfully conveys the essential information for useful discussions. The final unit contains information and discussion about three topics-the definition of "normal," the question of genetic determinism, and the use of animals in scientific research-that predate the "embryological revolution" but remain important issues for scientists and concerned citizens alike to consider. ...show less

2005 Paperback NEAR FINE Paperback, 280pp., This listing is a new book, a title currently in-print which we order directly and immediately from the publisher. Our ability to alter the course of hum ...show morean development ranks among the most significant changes in modern science. We can choose the sex of our children in advance, and could potentially prevent disease with genetic enhancement. An ethical question then arises as to whether or not these things should be done. The goal of this book is to present enough science so that readers can both make an informed analysis of these issues. The chapters are not meant to provide definitive answers but, rather, to be springboards for discussion. The presentation of topics follows the same sequence used in most developmental biology courses. While the science has been simplified and explained at the level of an introductory biology course, it successfully conveys the essential information for useful discussions. *****PLEASE NOTE: This item is shipping from an authoriz ...show less
