Großartig, fesselnd und folgenreich: Pulitzer-Preisträger Siddhartha Mukherjee erzählt meisterhaft die Geschichte der Entzifferung des Mastercodes, der unser Menschsein bestimmt. Als Siddhartha Mukherjee seinen Bestseller ›Der König aller Krankheiten‹ beendet hatte, machte er sich auf eine Reise in die indische Heimat. Er besucht Cousin Moni, der an Schizophrenie leidet – wie auffällig viele seiner Verwandten. Fasziniert beginnt Mukherjee sich mit der Geschichte der Gene zu beschäftigen: Von den Erbsenkreuzungen Mendels bis zur neuesten Gen-Bearbeitungs-Methode CRISPR schreibt Mukherjee den spannenden Roman einer wissenschaftlichen Suche und verwebt ihn mit der Geschichte seiner Familie. Das große Buch eines begnadeten Erzählers und Arztes, das gewaltige Panorama einer machtvollen Entdeckung, die man nun endlich versteht. Packend und einzigartig. »Wer wissen will, was es bedeutet, Mensch zu sein, sollte dieses Buch lesen.« Boston Globe »Lesen Sie dieses Buch, so werden Sie auf die Zukunft bestens vorbereitet sein. « Sunday Times »Meisterhaft aufgebaut, wunderbar erzählt [...] Mukherjee ist ein Genie darin, zutiefst menschliche Geschichten hinter abstrakten Ideen zu entdecken.« Andrew Solomon, Washington Post »Eine inspirierende und ungemein bewegende Lektüre.« San Francisco Chronicle

This volume addresses the overlapping aspects of the fields of genomics, obesity and (non-) medical ethics. It is unique in its examination of the implications of genomics for obesity from an ethical perspective. Genomics covers the sciences and technologies involved in the pathways that DNA takes until the organism is completely built and sustained: the range of genes (DNA), transcriptor factors, enhancers, promoters, RNA (copy of DNA), proteins, metabolism of cell, cellular interactions, organisms. Genomics offers a holistic approach, which, when applied to obesity, can have surprising and disturbing implications for the existing networks tackling this phenomenon. The ethical concerns and consideration presented are inspired by the interaction between the procedural perspective emphasizing the necessity of consultative and participatory organizational relationships in the new gray zones between medicine and food, and the substantive perspective that both cherishes individual autonomy and embeds it in socio-cultural contexts.

The time is ripe for a robust discussion of human nature. In Eden's Garden: Rethinking Sin and Evil in an Era of Scientific Promise, Richard Coleman examines the notion of sin in a contemporary world that values scientific and nonreligious modes of thought regarding human behavior. This work is not an anti-science polemic, but rather an argument to show how sin and evil can make sense to the nonreligious mind, and how it is valuable to make sense of such phenomena. The author reconceptualizes sin and evil as "indelible pieces of our evolutionary history" preventing them from being ostracized as "too religious, without substance, mired in the past." Coleman redeems theology for what it can offer to the understanding of sin and evil while embracing and respecting what science can offer to further the common good. Examining themes in religion, philosophy, and theology, it is ideal for use in the numerous courses that move across these disciplines.
