Genetics' dreams in the post genomics era
Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy: A European Journal 2002; 5(1): 73-77
In this paper I explore the heuristic limits of human genetics, in particular the claim that it is possible to manipulate human germ cells in a pre- ordinate way (Gordon, 1999). I argue that this claim is unrealistic based on genetic reductionism and a wrong concept of genetic diseases.
