On Beyond Living: Rhetorical Transformations of the Life Sciencesby Richard Doyle
Pub. Date: 07/01/1997
Publisher: Stanford University Press
With careful readings of key texts from the history of molecular biology-such as those of Erwin Schrodinger, George Gamow, Jacques Monod, and Francois Jacob-the author maps out the complex relations between the practices of rhetoric and the technoscientific triumphs they accompanied, triumphs that bolstered a 'postvital' biology that increasingly elides and questions the boundary between organisms and machines.
