Synopsis: Today, genes are held to account for every aspect of our lives, from social inequalities to health, sexual preference etc. Professor Rose emphasizes the organism rather than the gene, and offers a bold new perspective on biology that acknowledges the essentially complex nature of life.

About the Author: Steven Rose is Professor of Biology and Director of the Brain and Behaviour Research Group at The Open University, Visiting Professor in the Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology at University College London, and, jointly with sociologist Hilary Rose, was the Professor of Physic (genetics and society) at Gresham College, London. His previous books include The Chemistry of Life (1996), Science and Society (with Hilary Rose) (1973), The Conscious Brain (1973), Molecules and Minds: Essays on Biology and the Social Order (1988), and The Making of Memory (1992). The Making of Memory won the 1993 Rhone-Poulenc Science Book Prize and he has received a variety of medals and international awards, most recently the Biochemical Society's special medal for science communication, the Edinburgh Medal and the silver medal of the Royal Scottish Society of Arts.

Book Description Vintage Publishing. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Lifelines: Life Beyond the Gene, Steven Rose, In Lifelines, neuroscientist Steven Rose offers a theory of life that insists that we as humans - along with all living creatures - create our own futures, though in circumstances not of our own choosing. Placing the organism at the centre of life, Rose directly confronts the ideology of reductionism and ultra-Darwinism, with its headline-grabbing insistence that all aspects of human life from sexual preference to infanticide, political orientation to violence, make domination to alcoholism, are in our genes and are the inevitable consequence of natural selection. Rose asserts that such claims are not merely socially naive, but fundamentally misunderstand the active and irreducible nature of living processes. Bookseller Inventory # B9780099468639
