Scientists' understanding of life is progressing more rapidly than at any point in human history from the extraordinary decoding of DNA to the controversial emergence of biotechnology. Featuring pioneering biologists geneticists physicists and science writers Life explains just how far we've come and takes a brilliantly educated guess at where we're heading. Freeman Dyson borrows from science fiction to contemplate real questions about what constitutes the stuff of life. Richard Dawkins and J. Craig Venter discuss the revelatory similarity of genes to digital information. Matt Ridley argues that nature and nurture are intricately intertwined. Steven Strogatz celebrates the spectacular Mathematical synchronicity of fireflies. Edward O. Wilson reveals what ants can teach us about building a superorganism and in turn about how cells build an organism. Elsewhere David Haig reports new findings on how mothers and fathers individually influence the human genome while Robert Trivers explores the opposing functions of the conscious and unconscious minds. And there's much more in this fascinating volume. We may never have all the answers. But the thinkers collected in Life are asking questions that will keep us dreaming for generations.
