  1. Playing God, Playing Adam: The Politics and Ethics of Enhancement. [REVIEW]Joanna Zylinska - 2010 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 7 (2):149-161.
    The question of enhancement occupies a prominent place not only in current bioethical debates but also in wider public discussions about our human future. In all of these, the problem of enhancement is usually articulated via two sets of questions: moral questions over its permissibility, extent and direction; and technical questions over the feasibility of different forms of regenerative and synthetic alterations to human bodies and minds.

    Is There Life in Cybernetics? : Designing a Post-Humanist Bioethics.Joanna Zylinska - 2009 - In Rosi Braidotti, Claire Colebrook & Patrick Hanafin (eds.), Deleuze and Law: Forensic Futures. Palgrave-Macmillan.
    The aim of this chapter is to engage with the inherent humanism of bioethics and consider the possibility of thinking bioethics otherwise - beyond the belief in the intrinsic dignity and superior value of the human, and beyond the rules and procedures rooted in this belief.

    On Spiders, Cyborgs, and Being Scared: The Feminine and the Sublime.Joanna Zylinska - 2001 - Manchester University Press.
    This innovative book explores one of the most important concepts in contemporary cultural debates: the sublime. Joanna Zylinska looks at the consequences of feminism and its rethinking of sexual differences, and how it has led to the sublime tradition. She argues that what is generally considered aesthetics can now be more productive thought of in terms of ethics instead. Looking at a range of diverse discourses—Orlan's carnal art, philosophies of the everyday, the French feminism of Cixous and Irigaray, and the (...)
