What’s so special about reconstructing a mammoth? Ethics of breeding and biotechnology in re-creating extinct species

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til bog/antologiForskningfagfællebedømt

Resurrection efforts are not just about ways of changing animals but about ways of changing nature. The re-creation of extinct species seems to steer right into a long-standing ethical debate about the (right) use of technology, about what constitutes a fair distribution of harms and benefits, and about the nature and extent of our responsibilities. This debate concerns on the one hand the moral status of (resurrected) animals and issues about how they should be treated; and on the other hand the value of nature and what kind of meddling is considered acceptable
