Chapter Summary

This appendix presents a précis of the author?s arguments. It first describes objections of cloning, and argues in one way or another way against all the objections. Then, the appendix presents the replies to the objections. The clone produced for logistical motivations would not be charged with repeating the outstanding life performance of another. Hans Jonas asks us to attend to the ?idea? of cloning. Duplicative cloning and logistical cloning seem to be directed by two very different ideas. The idea of logistical cloning is simply to make it possible for couples or persons to have the child that they want. But should people be able to have the children that they want? That is, should they be able to determine just how their children turn out to be?

Keywords: children; cloning; Hans Jonas
