John Harris is Emeritus Professor of Bioethics at the University of Manchester. His books include: The Value of Life (Routledge, 1985), Wonderwoman and Superman (OUP, 1992), Clones Genes and Immortality (OUP, 1998). He is the author or editor of twenty books and over three hundred and fifty papers.
One strength of the book is that it is rich with fruitful and overlapping questions about the nature of morality and moral education. It provides a treasure chest of questions for those looking for research programs to develop on the topic. Some of the main questions Harris examines are urgent and pressing social and ethical problems. * Daniel Moseley, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
