The Wisdom of Repugnance
by Leon Kass

Leon Kass
[on the unease caused by the possibility of cloning humans] "The emotional expression of deep wisdom, beyond
reasons power to fully articulate it....We are repelled by the prospect of cloning human beings...because we intuit
and feel, immediately and without argument, the violation of things that we rightfully hold dear."
