Summary

With the birth of the cloned sheep named "Dolly", a technique once found only in science fiction has suddenly become reality, along with a host of new ethical, social, policy, and religious dilemmas. What is the potential of animal cloning in the research and treatment of human disease? How do the scientific facts differ from the public perception of cloning? Will it be possible to clone human beings in the near future? Are scientists playing God? Should the government regulate such research?These are just a few of the profound questions addressed in this timely collection of the most significant articles on the subject of cloning. Philosophers Michael Ruse and Aryne Sheppard have selected the work of leading scientists, medical ethicists, healthcare specialists, philosophers, and representatives of various religious denominations to create an overview of the many issues raised by this amazing scientific advance.In breadth of coverage and quality of the contributions, there is no comparablevolume to this excellent collection on one of the most important issues of the new century.
