They readily conceptualize the human body as one substrate for the mind, dispensable once better replacements are engineered. Prosthetic limbs, artificial hips and knees, cochlear implants, and pace makers are standard medical devices. , are commercially available or are being developed. Each component may be seen as just one exception to an otherwise natural form, however taken together one is left with the impression that the organic body is replaceable. ’’ The research described above imagined along the lines of science fiction characters such as the bionic man, bionic woman, and Robocop suggest that human biology is not so special and that a synthetic body would do just fine.

Similarly, should we or our descendants one day succeed in becoming what relative to current standards we may refer to as posthuman, this need not entail a loss dignity either (213). ’’ (19) Fortunately, according to Young, humans are uniquely gifted to exercise this will. We have bypassed Darwinian evolution with the first steps in ‘‘designer evolution’’ and continued progression is our species’ destiny and the individual’s best chance for flourishing. Attempts to conserve human nature by banning enhancement will violate the quintessential drive of human beings!

By ‘‘rhetoric’’ I’m not using the pejorative connotation of word play which distracts and misleads.
