Pollack starts by way of reflecting at the huge questions of that means and purpose—and the trouble of discovering both within the orderly global defined through the knowledge of technology. He considers the duty to discover that means and function regardless of usual selection's declare to be a whole clarification of our presence as a species—a declare that calls upon neither average purpose, nor layout, nor dressmaker. subsequent, the ebook specializes in concerns of loose will, from the alternative of a scientist to just accept proof, to the alternative of a spiritual individual to just accept a revelation, to a patient's lack of unfastened will in scientific remedy. right here Pollack addresses questions of ethics and gives a provocative comparability of 2 tricky texts whose contents stay incompletely understood: the DNA "text" of the human genome and the Hebrew list of Jewish written and oral legislations. In last, Pollack considers the promise of genetic medication in permitting us to glimpse our personal destiny and gives a reconsideration of the potential software of the so-called placebo impression in curing illness.
