Humanism in Crisis

Humanism in Crisis

by Philippe Desan

Editorial Reviews

This doctoral dissertation reviews the development of methods for deriving human insulin, largely from porcine insulin. Discussed are methods such as enzymatic peptide synthesis; transpeptidation using trypsin with both porcine insulin and synthetic precursors; and the combined use of enzymatic semisynthesis with recombinant DNA techniques. Major sections include the following: materials and methods, transpeptidation, conversion of single-chain precursors, and kinetic studies. No index. No one is exactly sure what happened in France between Montaigne and Descartes (1580-1630) that made humanism vanish from the scene, but 14 scholars offer various interpretations in essays first presented at a conference in Loches, France, September 1988.
