“Most recent efforts toward a biological understanding of the human condition attempt to reinvigorate the idea of human nature. But is this idea feasible in the light of recent developments in the biological and social sciences?

Regardless of the answer one gives, the question raises the larger issue of whether the human is itself a category worth defending for scientific or even political purposes. I shall argue that indeed it is but that much recent thinking and research challenges rather than aids such a project".

Steve Fuller is Professor of Sociology at University of Warwick. Filmed at Science Gallery TCD, May 2008.
