Better, faster, stronger?

Better Humans? The politics of human enhancement
In partnership with The Wellcome Trust, Demos is setting out to stimulate a public debate about the implications of human enhancement technologies.

    The aim of this project is to initiate a public debate about issues of human enhancement in the UK. We’ll be commissioning a series of essays from different perspectives about the implications of human enhancement to be published as a Demos collection in January 2006.

    We’ll also be listening to public concerns and attitudes towards enhancement at a series of events during the summer of 2005. More here
