What [the] drive to mastery misses is an appreciation of the gifted character of human powers and achievements.-- Michael Sandel in his third Reith Lecture, expressing caution about genetic manipulation and other biotechnology. Matt Ridley seemed unconvinced:
My main issue is how we take the decision as to whether something is an enhancement or a cure.Can there be common ground?
Perhaps the idea of 'gift' can be accommodated both by those who believe a (supernatural) giver is at work and those (including me) who do not.  The latter can apply it figuratively (a little like the term 'natural selection', in which 'selection' does not imply the literal existence of a selector). A naturalistic outlook need not be incompatible with a sense of "openness to the unbidden"  which requires (among other things) a strong sense that existence is astonishing, that knowledge, while powerful, has limits, and that wisdom is elusive.
"Nature is more various than observation though observers be innumerable."Footnotes
 Examine how people construct the idea of 'gift'. See, for example, Lewis Hyde.
 Sandel quotes this phrase from William F. May, a theologian. But surely, like "negative capability", it can be grounded in non-theological, lived experience.
