A question of image

“Scientific advances (particularly in the biotechnologies and genetic engineering, the areas most often focused on by the media) revolutionise our understanding of the living world, just as the concepts and representations formulated and forged during a slow process, throughout history, enable us to perceive and think of ourselves as human beings. The challenge is to redefine what this ‘humanity’ means by understanding it and perceiving it through scientific discoveries.”
