dc.description.abstract What is the future of human genetic engineering? Are the clones and chimeras likely to be produced by human genetic engineering part of the biotech future? Or is this vision of the posthuman future something long implied by the cultural history of technology? Are we moving towards the age of the posthuman, or are we trapped in a technological cycle first explored by the writings of Francis Bacon’s Novum Organum?
