Nature and Life

The modern scientific and technological project is part of a bigger dream, one of understanding the universal laws of nature and life in order to master them unconditionally. The huge success of such a project comes with a prize: not only are we able to manipulate all living creatures in unprecedented ways, but we live under a constant risk of triggering irreversible transformations in our own environment, jeopardizing the very survival of our own and other species. Technoscience thus became a power that cannot be guided by its own criteria of rationality and demands for a new kind of political decisions and ethical responsibilities.
