The overwhelming success of genetics and molecular biology in the 1970s had an unfortunate side effect. DNA became the ‘be all’ and ‘end all’ of biology and “the selfish gene” became the new secular pop religion.
Physiology and medicine suffered great blows from this shift. The human genome project, though valuable, did not deliver even 10% of what it promised and the consequences to healthcare have been devastating.
The new book Understanding Living Systems by Raymond and Denis Noble is an easy-to-read guide to the New Biology that brings purpose back into nature and respects the agency and autonomy of each organism and its systems.
