Abstrakt

This project investigates the ethical issues surrounding medical enhancement. The point of departure for our research is The Danish Council of Ethics' account of medical enhancement. The Danish Council of Ethics maintains a negative attitude towards the legalization of medical enhancement. By thoroughly analyzing, criticizing and scrutinizing the ethical standpoints offered by The Danish Council of Ethics this project aims to demonstrate the weaknesses in their argumentation. Furthermore, we put forward alternative notions of what medical enhancement could be in mankind's future flourishing. This project concludes that the various aspects concerning the legalization of medical enhancement are ambivalent, as both sides of the discussion offer sustainable considerations.
