Creativity, gratitude, and the enhancement debate
This chapter describes two ethical frameworks out of which people seem to come to the academic debate about enhancement technologies. It argues that the impulse to creativity (or self-transformation) can be thought of as the organizing commitment for one framework, and that the impulse to gratitude (or letting things be) can be thought of as the organizing commitment of the other. It also describes some of the different sets of reasons that seem to cluster around each of those commitments. Different reasons seem most salient, depending on one's framework.
