  1. Lisa Bellantoni (2011). The Triple Helix: The Soul of Bioethics. Palgrave Macmillan.
    Lisa Bellantoni argues that contemporary bioethics divides into two logically incommensurable positions: a cult of rights, which identifies the worth of human life with our autonomy, and a cult of life, which identifies human worth with the possession of a soul, and thereby, of human dignity.

  2. Lisa Bellantoni (2007). Are We Good Enough? Journal of Philosophical Research 32 (Supplement):283-289.
    If we can enhance ourselves genetically, should we? A plague of recent works in bioethics insist that we should not. Bill McKibben, for example, joins a chorus of theorists who oppose enhancement efforts not because they might harm individuals or undermine social practices, but because they imperil a human nature that is already “good enough,” and threaten to catapult us into a “post-human” world. But what’s wrong, exactly, with being post-human? These positions never answer that question. They fail biologically, sociologically, (...)

  4. Lisa Bellantoni (2003). What Good is a Pragmatic Bioethic? Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 28 (5 & 6):615 – 633.
    Do bioethicists need yet another theoretical approach with which to frame their disagreements? Many pragmatists contend that pragmatism, unlike its liberal and utilitarian counterparts, is uniquely commendable in (a) beginning from our lived experiences and (b) locating those experiences amid our social relations. In place of an " principlism," pragmatism offers a practical "bedside-bioethic"; in lieu of "autonomy run amuk," pragmatism proposes an ethic rooted in our communal resources. To date, however, efforts to develop such a bioethic have been stymied (...)

  5. Lisa Bellantoni (2002). What Are Persons Made Of? Proceedings of the American Catholic Philosophical Association 76:265-274.
    Many current debates between Catholic and secular bioethicists stalemate upon one central dispute: whether human dignity is a property persons bear at conception, or a product of social engagement, i.e., whether persons are born, or made. We need not resolve that dispute, however, to affirm two points that the prospect of human cloning should teach us. First, whether persons are born or made, whether we affirm a creationist, traducian, or even reincarnational view of the soul, the prospect of cloning highlights (...)
