"Raccogliendo l’esortazione kantiana al sapere aude, a utilizzare con coraggio e determinazione le proprie facoltà intellettuali, Rita Levi-Montalcini si confronta con i grandi interrogativi del nostro tempo, riflettendo sulle scelte che gli uomini del nuovo millennio saranno chiamati a compiere. Ne risulta un discorso articolato ma universale che, passando in rassegna temi cruciali quali la salvaguardia dell’ambiente e la sperimentazione sugli embrioni, la cura del cancro e la tutela dei diritti fondamentali dell’uomo, sottolinea il legame indissolubile e necessario tra ricerca e dimensione etica, tra innovazione scientifica e difesa dell’individuo. Una riflessione appassionata, animata dalla serena fiducia nell’uomo e nella sua capacità di comprendere e gestire le sfide della contemporaneità."--Back cover

5 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in Italian and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marie Curie non poté studiare in patria, la Polonia, perché in quell'epoca l'università era preclusa alle donne. Per questo si trasferì in Francia dove si laureò e si dedicò alla ricerca con enorme successo, fino al Premio Nobel. È solo uno dei tanti modelli femminili affascinanti, rigorosi, combattivi, mai banali, raccontati da Rita Levi-Montalcini. Storie straordinariamente esemplari per le adolescenti spaesate tra "velinismo" e paure. A loro, e ai loro fratelli e genitori, la più grande scienziata italiana racconta con passione i propri riferimenti personali: figure innovative, fiere e rivoluzionarie che hanno saputo affermarsi e trascinare con sé l'emancipazione della donna nella società occidentale, fino ai giorni nostri.
