Playing God?: Genetic Determinism and Human Freedon

by Ted Peters
 
Since the original publication of Playing God? in 1996, three developments in genetic technology have moved to the center of the public conversation about the ethics of human bioengineering. Cloning, the completion of the human genome project, and, most recently, the controversy over stem cell research have all sparked lively debates among religious thinkers

Overview

Since the original publication of Playing God? in 1996, three developments in genetic technology have moved to the center of the public conversation about the ethics of human bioengineering. Cloning, the completion of the human genome project, and, most recently, the controversy over stem cell research have all sparked lively debates among religious thinkers and the makers of public policy. In this updated edition, Ted Peters illuminates the key issues in these debates and continues to make deft connections between our questions about God and our efforts to manage technological innovations with wisdom.

Editorial Reviews

Francis S. Collins
[Praise for the first edition] In this remarkable book, Ted Peters explores the fallacies of the 'gene myth' and presents a resounding array of arguments against this kind of all-encompassing genetic determinism.
