"Biosocial Becomings is a thought-provoking collection of essays on the current re-negotiation of the boundaries between the biological and the social in the study of humans. The subtitle of the book promises a new integration of social and biological anthropology after a long century of divorce. It does more: It explores a conceptual space that is no longer dominated by the dichotomy between nature and culture."
Hans-Jörg Rheinberger, Max Planck Institute for the History of Science
"The essays included in the book are highly informative and inspiring. I am pleased that the authors actually build upon an interdisciplinary approach. The texts are based not only on findings and theories of social and biological anthropology, but the authors also benefit from various concepts of philosophy, psychology, and other scientific fields. Biosocial Becomings is a highly original volume including inspiriting texts. I personally find [it] groundbreaking, because it is really an effort to restore connection of social and biological anthropology."
Martin Soukup, Anthropos
"... an interesting and thought-provoking read for those of us ready to engage in debate with our colleagues in social anthropology."
