Abstract [en]

Just like the first theories in physics viewed the atoms as independent and surrounded by a void, our boides' microscopic constituents are often portrayed as disconnected from the body as an unified organism, and from its cultural and social contexts. In The Atomized Body the authors examine the relations between culture, society and bioscientific research and show how our bodies' singularized particles indeed still are socially and culturally embedded. In today's medicine, the biosciences are entangled with state power, commercialism, and cultural ideas and expectations, as well as with the hopes and fears of individuals. Therefore, biomedicine and biotechnology also reshape our perceptions of selfhood and life. From multidiscplinary perspectived, including visual studies, theology, and ethnology, this volume discusses the biosciences and the atomized body in their social, cultural and philosophical contexts.
