Reviews

“Contributions to the volume expose and challenge a number of assumptions in unpacking and interrogating the notion of enhancement. … those interested in the direction of theory and debate about notions of enhancement, the animal question … and broader societal implications will find contributions in this volume to be useful. … This volume provides an interesting contribution to what will continue to be a substantive debate.” (Colin Salter, Nanoethics, Vol. 10, 2016)
