Abstract

Author explores the paradoxical notions of human nature, and how all of these rely on the notion that there is standard human body all of us share. One the notion of a standard body is disproved and that bioethical notions of human nature are inherently contradictory, a more constructive conversation allowing for morphological diversity can occur.
