Comments on “Genome: Moral Choices and the Polity”

Peter W. Van Arsdale

I remember clearly the day in 1980 when my University of Denver colleague, Alan Gilbert, rushed into my office and exclaimed: “My brother just won the Nobel Prize!” Indeed, Walter Gilbert had, for his discoveries regarding DNA sequencing methods. These discoveries, and those of others to follow, paved the way for the Human Genome Project. Yet, while this project apparently spurred the accompanying article by Thomas Fitzgerald, it in no sense came to dominate it. Rather, Fitzgerald has written a highly heuristic piece, one that – appropriately – raises more questions than it answers.
