Elzin 1 Fatima Elzin Dr. Henry Philosophy 2240C 25 April 2010 Paper #2 Throughout time, humans have been known for trying to perfect certain imperfections on the human body. This includes plastic surgery, whitening creams, botox, makeup, and the list goes on. Recently, ideas of furthering this “perfection” process have risen; the idea of making humans “better than well” and genetically engineering DNA to manipulate human nature has become popular. Personally, I believe that we should accept human nature the way it is given to us and life as a gift. In order for humans to flourish, they should accept all perfections and imperfections because we are not created perfectly. The only limitation to this would be if one uses medical technology to prevent/cure a disease. In the short story, the scientist and husband of Georgina, Aylmer, introduces the issue of “transforming love” vs. “accepting love.” Aylmer tries to “design” his wife instead of accepting her and loving her for what she is. Ultimately, his lack of acceptance for her leads to her death.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
