Creating Life from Life : Biotechnology and Science Fiction, Hardback Book

Creating Life from Life : Biotechnology and Science Fiction Hardback

Edited by Rosalyn W. (University of Virginia, Charlottesville, USA) Berne

Description

This book is a collection of essays by scientists, historians, philosophers of science, and students.

The essays meld biotechnology into science fiction stories and thereby open a conversation about the morality of what we may be one day, and what it may mean to be human as our biotechnological endeavors continue to evolve.

The biotechnology "revolution," launched on a global scale many decades ago, has taken a direct course toward re-creating life.

Yet there are still many choices to be made in shaping the future that it may one day make possible.

The book motivates readers toward deep reflection and continual discourse, which are essential if biotechnology is to evolve in ethical, meaningful, and sustainable ways.
