Biopolitics, Mythic Science, and Progressive Values
Marcy Darnovsky
Marcy Darnovsky Ph.D.

This is a chapter in Progress in Bioethics: Science, Policy and Politics; edited by Jonathan D. Moreno and Sam Berger (The MIT Press, 2010).

Progressive biopolitics can and should draw deeply on our commitments to social justice and the common good, to public-sector oversight, to a precautionary sensibility in the face of powerful technologies, and to the broad inclusion of civil society in democratizing science and science policy.
