Abstract (english):

The advent of transgenic technologies have be a controversial area in science. For example critics argue that transgenics blurs the barrier between humans and animals. Another reason is that transgenics may diminish human belief of its superiority in the animal kingdom which has been asserted by various religious and philosophical worldviews. On the contrary, genetic research has brought to our attention of human similarity with the animal kingdom. The aim of this paper is to provide some philosophical understanding of transgenics and proffer new ways for exploring transgenics.
