It Ain't Necessarily So: The Dream of the Human Genome and Other Illusions

الغلاف الأمامي
New York Review of Books, 2000 - 330 من الصفحات
"In these ten essays, all of which were originally published in The New York Review of Books, Lewontin combines criticisms of overreaching scientific claims with expositions of the exact state of current scientific knowledge - not only what we do know, but what we don't and maybe won't anytime soon. In discussions of heredity, natural selection, and gender, evolutionary psychology and altruism, sex surveys, cloning, mapping the human genome, and genetic engineering in agriculture, he casts an eye on the temptation to look to biology for explanations of everything we want to know about our physical, mental, and social lives." "The second edition of this collection includes new essays on genetically modified food and the completion of the Human Genome Project. It is an indispensible guide to the most controversial issues in the life sciences today."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
