This chapter reflects on transhumanism from a Christian perspective, specifically with reference to the Biblical teaching that human beings are made in the “image” and “likeness” of God. It considers a version of that teaching that is seemingly as permissive as could be about “transhumanist technologies,” and concludes that even that version places significant limits on the pursuit and adoption of such technologies. Those limits are far more restrictive than the limits (if any) acknowledged by p...

This view runs against some common wisdom, which dismisses instrumentalism as ‘cheap’. In contrast, I consider how an instrumentalist might think about the reconstruction theorems, and, having made a distinction between ‘reconstructing’ quantum theory and ‘reinventing’ quantum theory, I suggest tha...

e17623 Background: Clinical trials have identified increased risks of venous thromboembolism and mortality with ESA administration to cancer patients and increased risks of arterial thrombosis with ESA administration to ESRD patients. No empirical data has evaluated the potential association between ESA administration with severe toxicity among patients who have both ESRD and cancer. The underlying hypothesis is that these toxicities appear to be related to achieving or targeting high hemoglobin...
