A not-so-new eugenics. Harris and Savulescu on human enhancement.

Author information

Centre for Human Bioethics, Monash University.


John Harris and Julian Savulescu, leading figures in the "new' eugenics, argue that parents are morally obligated to use genetic and other technologies to enhance their children. But the argument they give leads to conclusions even more radical than they acknowledge. Ultimately, the world it would lead to is not all that different from that championed by eugenicists one hundred years ago.
