This thesis seeks to confront the question: how should we attend to a biotechnological revolution?, specifically investigating the case of human enhancement biotechnology. It does so by being exploring, critique, and then instrumentally dissecting two diametrically opposing responses to the prospect of human enhancement: the technoprogressive movement Transhumanism (pro-biotech) and the American philosopher Francis Fukuyama (anti-biotech). Then, it will use its findings to produce a more pragmatic program towards how we in the form of states and societies can deal with the reality of revolutionary biotechnological change.
