Much of the technology used in today’s society could be considered enhancements under some framework. Human uses of substances and practices such as caffeine, meditation, brain training apps and creativity courses, plus countless other extracurricular activities and products all force the human body to be its best, or even past its best. The need for ethical consideration arises when deciding the uses for technology and enhancements. This paper will consider the ethics of human enhancement with regards to the specific profession of physician under the framework of virtue ethics.
