Review "...a whirlwind tour through the sheer variety of human pre-occupations...Moore, a medical journalist, engagingly recounts 'real-life' stories..." (Independent, 30 December 2003) “…should be read by everyone working in and around science…” (Focus, February 2004) “… stretches the boundaries of self-definition and re-introduces the idea of humans as holistic beings…” (The Science Reporter, December 2003) From the Inside Flap What does it mean to be human? Recent developments in science have given us the power to create life, to sustain it and to examine the genetic recipes of each individual. Yet, far from improving our understanding of humanity, such possibilities raise ever more complex issues. The tendency is to make life simple by focusing on single aspects of our existence. Defining life and death is no longer a consideration of the holistic nature of a person’s being, but a question of whether the frontal lobes of the brain are functioning properly. Reducing ourselves may be useful for law making, but it reveals only a shadow of the true complexity of what it is to be a human being. In this thought-provoking examination of the complexity of human nature Pete Moore explores different facets of what it means to be human in the twenty-first century. He shows that with this holistic approach we can more appropriately assess the scientific developments that are already impacting our lives.
