Anthropologist Paul Rabinow focuses on the core of Western rationality, in particular the practices of molecular biology as they apply to our understanding of human nature. In his final essay, Rabinow reflects in dialogue with biochemist Tom White on the place of science in modernity, on science as a vocation, and on the differences between the human and natural sciences.What one finds in this volume is a sustained reflection on what it means to do fieldwork today in or on (post)modern societies.
