The presest volume is a collection of papers given at a conference on "Biopolitics. The Politics of the Body, Race and Nature", held in Vienna in May 1994. The conference was based on the book Biopolitics by Ferenc Feher and Agnes Heller published by the European Centre in Spring 1994. The authors of this volume from various standpoints discuss and evaluate the central thesis of the book stating that after the defeat of the grand narrative, the idea of difference promised freedom, tolerance and free play. Instead, new dangers emerged. The politics of difference became used as a new brand of identity politics; race-thinking, biofeminism, and ethnic strife occupied the space that has been abandoned by the grand old ideas. New kinds of intolerance, new practices of violence appeared. Thus the main question resulting from this latest trend is: What are its implications for modern liberal democracy based on universal human rights?
