German philosophers debate eugenic engineering

Genetic Crossroads
November 21st, 1999

"Anger as Philosopher Revives Vocabulary of Third Reich" is the

headline of the Independent Online's coverage of Peter Sloterdijk's
September lecture titled "Rules for the Human Zoo." Sloterdijk,
whom the Independent Online identifies as an eminent left-wing
philosopher, spoke of the benefits of "human breeding" and
"steering reproduction." The lecture, delivered at a Bavarian
castle to an audience of Jewish intellectuals, has sparked a
storm of public controversy in Germany, as well as condemnation
from Jurgen Habermas. For more on the debate, see
