Journal of Philosophy: A Cross-Disciplinary Inquiry 7 (16):42-52 (2011)
In this essay, I consider what happens to debates over genetic enhancement when we “deconstruct” the opposition between “grown and made” and the notion of freedom of choice that comes with it. Along with the binary grown and made comes other such oppositions at the center of these debates: chance and choice, accident and deliberation, nature and culture. By deconstructing the oppositions between grown versus made, and free versus determined, alternative routes through these bioethical thickets start to emerge.
