Abstract:

This volume charts the mutual reconfiguration between scientific and social innovations in and around the molecular life sciences. Today's biology is making visible what was once invisible. It parses life into new units of sense-making and reassembles them into new forms: from genes to clones, from embryonic stages to the building-blocks of synthetic biology. The aim of the book is to cast a new gaze on these dramatic advances in the life sciences by probing their mutual interaction with equally dramatic re-configurations in the political texture of our societies.
