More (than) Human
This new book edited by Profs Francisco Lara (Granada) and Julian Savulescu (Oxford) provides a general introduction to human enhancement ethics in the Spanish language – filling a gap in Spanish literature on the subject. Papers from academics at Oxford University’s Uehiro Centre in Practical Ethics, the University of Granada and other prominent ethicists offer an analysis of current trends in the ethics of biotechnology, artificial intelligence (AI) and enhancement.
The volume focuses on exploring the ethics of new and developing science, examining real-world scenarios such as the use of oxytocin, the applications of CRISPR, the use of neurofeedback for moral enhancement, and the possible application of AI to moral decision-making. Regarding the latter, the book goes beyond mainstream analyses of the ethical aspects of AI uses, inquiring also into the promises and perils of using AI to make us more ethical.
Published by Tecnos, and with a prologue from Prof Nicholas Agar (Victoria University of Wellington) Más (que) humanos provides Spanish-speaking students and academics with a general introduction to the topic, followed by an in-depth discussion of Moral Enhancement.
