Chris Ganchoff pages -


Ganchoff addresses the suggestion that the category of ‘the human’ is being rearticulated by human embryonic stem cells research and the development of ‘regenerative medicine’, countering that the category is actually being consolidated. This is supported by an examination of Dipesh Chakrabarty’s interpretation of Marxist historiography-placing the human outside the field of biotechnology-and Nicholas Agar’s conception of liberal eugenics.
