I talked in my essay at the beginning of this volume about my own efforts at self-improvement, a form of human enhancement which is not often discussed in the vast current literature on enhancement. In this essay I to turn to the efforts of others to effect my improvement either by friendly criticism or commentary or by sending in my direction thoughts from which I have undoubtedly benefitted and which I hope will interest and engage all readers of this book. All the chapters in this book deserve very detailed study and discussion and all are more than just commentaries or discussion pieces. I also note that each chapter is a self-contained and elegant contribution to the literature which would be worth reading in its own right quite independently of any engagement with my own approaches to the issues discussed. In this essay I say some, necessarily very brief, things, if not always in response, then at least about the very stimulating essays which comprise this book. It is part a response to my critics and part a further clarification of my philosophy.
