Nick Bostrom, Dignity and
Enhancement
, Does human enhancement threaten our dignity as some have
asserted? Or could our dignity perhaps be technologically enhanced? After
disentangling several different concepts of dignity, this essay focuses on the
idea of dignity as a quality (a kind of excellence admitting of degrees). The
interactions between enhancement and dignity as a quality are complex and link
into fundamental issues in ethics and value theory. [Commissioned for The
President’s Council on Bioethics, 2007, forthcoming]
