    Equality of Whom? A Genetic Perspective on Equality (of Opportunity).Oliver Feeney - 2006 - Res Publica 12 (4):357-383.
    Rawls’ principle of fair equality of opportunity has been regularly discussed and criticized for being inadequate regarding natural inequalities. In so far as this egalitarian goal is sound, the purpose of the paper is to see how the prospect of radical genetic intervention might affect this particular inadequacy. I propose that, in a post-genetic setting, an appropriate response would be to extend the same rules regulating societal inequalities to a regulation of comparable genetic inequalities. I defend this stance against recent (...)

This is particularly so when we speak of enhancements that benefit the recipient in positional terms and enhancements that are germ-line and which can be passed on to future generations. I argue that the egalitarian reluctance, as displayed by Max Mehlman , to permitting enhancements is overblown. Recent writings from Buchanan and Farrelly highlight a more positive, context-dependent, role for permitting the (...)
