Quote from the Back Cover

“The failure of the modern mind to appreciate limits is of course destroying the environment as well as indigenous societies and cultures across the globe. Traditional societies view limits very differently. They see them as meaningful and even as sacramental. We need to regain this view of limits if we are to stop the juggernaut of biotechnology. In a sense we need to create, or revive, a new sacred understanding of limits. This does not mean that we can give up daily battles in courts and legislatures and in the grassroots. They need to be fought. But we will also have to attack the problem at its root which is the technological imagination and counter it with a revival of the sacramental view of life.”

from “The Genetic Nightmare” by Andrew Kimbrell
