Book Description:
Human cloning is a prospect the contributors to Clones and Clones view with varying degrees of alarm, calm, ambivalence, and not a little humor. Ranging from psychoanalyst Adam Phillips's case study of a child whose confusion of 'cloning' and 'clothing' expresses our mixed desire and terror of sameness, to Stephen Jay Gould's and Richard Dawkins's 'characteristically pithy and intelligent' essays (Civilization); from William Ian Miller's analysis of the queasiness the subject elicits in many of us, to Martha Nussbaum's witty and elegiac fantasy of the cloning of a lost lover--this superb collection limns our beliefs and concerns about what it means to be human. The writers here, says the San Diego Union-Tribune, 'comprise an eclectic group, but their observations on the science and ethics of cloning, how it might fit into and affect human society and what the future might bring are just the sort of thinking that . . . we need more of.'
