Abstract:

As new technologies are developed and applied in a sporting context we ask the questions: What is good sport? What is cheating? What technologies should athletes use? In pursuit of the answer to these and other questions, the author indulges his, self confessed, fascination with post-human and trans-human technologies as a tool for presenting a detailed discussion of the issues that the possibility and reality of genetic modification poses for athletes. In so doing he contemplates the nature of human enhancement in a context that makes the major issues clear, whilst avoiding the negativity associated with the term eugenics. Book: Genetically Modified Athletes: Biomedical Ethics, Gene Doping and Sport. By Andy Miah. London : Routledge, 2004
