Краткое описание

Many bioethicists oppose the use of biomedical technology to prolong the lives of old people. This paper criticizes their views and argues that a high priority of a humane society should be to promote research on life-prolonging technology and to make the fruits of this research available to everyone who wants it.

Ключевые слова: bioethicists, death, longevity, nature, technology
