This discussion of the ethical debates formed in the early years of the genetic engineering of animals continues the theme of ontological and value pluralism. Dogmatic support for animal modification and dogmatic prohibition of it are both rejected. The main perspective that emerges is how to combine the instrumental use of science and technology with an understanding of human limits and responsibilities for the preservation of the complex and plural sources of value in evolutionary nature and the intrinsic value of the species interdependency within which even human beings live.

Keywords:   transgenic animals, animal research, animal experimentation, human limits, human responsibilities, plural values
