  1. Habermas, Human Agency, and Human Genetic Enhancement: The Grown, the Made, and Responsibility for Actions.Peter N. Herissone-Kelly - 2012 - Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 21 (2):200-210.
    Recent developments in genomic science hold out the tantalizing prospect of soon being able to treat and prevent a wide variety of medical conditions through gene therapy. In time, it may be possible to use similar techniques not simply to combat disease but also to enhance, or improve on, normal human functioning.

  3. Determining the common morality's norms in the sixth edition of Principles of Biomedical Ethics.Peter N. Herissone-Kelly - 2011 - Journal of Medical Ethics 37 (10):584-587.
    Tom Beauchamp and James Childress have always maintained that their four principles approach (otherwise known as principlism) is a globally applicable framework for biomedical ethics. This claim is grounded in their belief that the principles of respect for autonomy, non-maleficence, beneficence and justice form part of a 'common morality', or collection of very general norms to which everyone who is committed to morality subscribes. The difficulty, however, has always been how to demonstrate, at least in the absence of a full-blooded (...)

    The Lack of an Obligation to Select the Best Child: Silencing the Principle of Procreative Beneficence.Peter N. Herissone-Kelly - 2017 - In Kristien Hens, Daniela Cutas & Dorothee Horstkötter (eds.), Parental Responsibility in the Context of Neuroscience and Genetics. Switzerland: Springer International Publishing. pp. 153-166.
    This chapter aims to show that prospective parents are not bound in their reproductive decision making by a principle of procreative beneficence. That is, they have no obligation (as Julian Savulescu, the principle’s originator, famously thinks they have) to choose the possible child, from a range of possible children they might have, who is likely to lead the best life. I will summarise and clarify the content of previous papers of mine, in which I argue that since the sorts of (...)

    The Evidence for the Pharmaceutical Strengthening of Attachment: What, Precisely, Would Love Drugs Enhance?Peter N. Herissone-Kelly - 2022 - Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics 31 (4):536-544.
    In recent decades, scientists have begun to identify the brain processes and neurochemicals associated with the different stages of love, including the all-important stage of attachment. Experimental findings—readily seized upon by those bioethicists who want to urge that we sometimes have good reason pharmaceutically to enhance flagging relationships—are presented as demonstrating that attachment is regulated and strengthened by the neuropeptides oxytocin and vasopressin. I shall argue, however, that often what the experimental data in fact show is only that exogenous administration (...)
